Students and staff districtwide wore the color orange and took part in recognizing Unity Day. This event is part of National Bullying Prevention Month, where schools and communities across the country join together and wear orange to show their support for students who have been bullied.

Junior-Senior High School students in grades seven through 12 were encouraged to sign pledge banners which stated, “I Pledge to Be Kind to Others.” They pledged to support others who have been hurt or harmed, treat others with kindness, be more accepting of people’s differences and help include those who are left out. Unity bracelets and kindness stickers were also distributed to those who pledged. By taking a stand, students chose to strengthen the cause and unite those who want everyone to feel safe at school, in their community and while online.

Students and staff at Centre Avenue and Rhame Avenue elementary schools also joined together and took a stand against bullying. They wore orange attire and participated in activities that promoted kindness.
