Pink Shirt Day, February 24, 2021

​Oki, Tansi, Hello Families, 

We loved seeing the ocean of pink today! As well, as Ms. Jess shared on the morning announcement, even if we did not have a pink shirt, that is okay! What matters is we show love and kindness towards all of our friends today and everyday. 

Here is a little history behind Pink Shirt Day.

Two Nova Scotia high school students inspired Pink Shirt Day by organizing their fellow students to wear pink in support of a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. Bullying can happen to anyone, anywhere. On Feb. 24, Pink Shirt Day is a time to encourage Albertans to stand up to bullying when they see it in schools, communities, workplaces, at home and online.
