November 22, 2019

Although North Forsyth makes an effort to prevent bullying with an occasional poster on the wall, it does not help stop the torment people receive in the hallways.

Every Black Friday, people continuously show up to their favorite stores at the crack of dawn simply for the chance to purchase goods at a discount.
