Led by its student council, Robert Frost embraced P.S. I Love You Day on Feb. 12, wearing purple to represent all those standing against bullying, and helping to end depression and prevent suicide.

The nonprofit organization P.S. I Love You Day was started in 2010 by West Islip teenager Brooke DiPalma, following the tragic suicides of her father and a senior at her school. Held annually on the second Friday of February, the day promotes positive messages of love, acceptance and community, symbolized by the color purple.

At Robert Frost, teachers Dani Iadevaia, Erica Rossi and Denise Tassey shared the story of P.S. I Love You Day with the school during morning announcements on Feb. 8, and the student council sold lollipop message grams during lunch periods throughout the week to promote P.S. I Love You Day, sending anonymous positive messages to friends and staff.
