Moms can bring their kids in during the day and enjoy a cup of coffee with their friends while their kids socialize with their friends. Older kids can hang out together after school.

After the shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School (MPHS), Jackson High School students coordinated with local high schools to generate unified support.

In addition, a group of students at Jackson High School started a social media campaign personalizing support for the students at Marysville Pilchuck.

The idea is simple: cut out a paper heart, write “MP” on it, take a picture of yourself or friends holding the heart, and then share it on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #MPinOurHearts.
