Students and staff at Memorial Junior High School wore maroon and white on September 6 in solidarity with the students at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. On that day, Robb White students returned to classes for the first time since the tragic May 24 shooting that left 19 children and two teachers dead.

Initially, school districts throughout north Texas were encouraged to wear maroon and white—the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District’s colors—but the movement quickly spread to districts and schools throughout the country, including Memorial.

“This was the first time our friends in Uvalde had gone back to school since the devastating tragedy at Robb Elementary,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Wayne Loper. “When I heard that districts across the country were doing this to show support, I knew we would want to take part.”
