Pink Shirt Day - February 28th

Pink Shirt Day is on Wednesday, Feb. 28! Originating from Nova Scotia in 2007, Pink Shirt Day has grown into an international annual anti-bullying initiative. This powerful movement symbolizes unity against bullying and promotes a culture of kindness and acceptance.

Please encourage your child to wear a pink shirt on February 28th, as a visible symbol of their commitment to stand up against bullying. Let's make a bold statement together and create a school environment that celebrates diversity and kindness.
