Pink shirt day origin was in Nova Scotia. Two upperclassmen observed a new student getting teased for wearing a pink shirt to school. In response, the upperclassmen texted their friends and asked them to wear pink shirts on the very next day to show support for the new student. According to the news report, over 200 students came to school in pink shirts. It just goes to show that one or two people can make a big difference. “International STAND UP to bullying day” will celebrated worldwide in November.
Mrs. Mark’s and Mr. Renko’s Advisory is very busy working on our bully-free school message. Students are working on posters and pledges that students may sign to show that they choose to be respectful and promote a bully-free school. Students have had an opportunity to purchase pink shirts here for $5.00.
