Bullying Prevention Month

October is National Bullying Prevention Month! One of the ways we observe and celebrate this month is by participating in Unity Day, or wear Orange day, on Wednesday October 20!

For those who aren’t familiar, Unity Day is a national day to stand against bullying and unite together for kindness, acceptance and inclusion of all people. Outside of school, especially after school and on weekends, talk to your students about being kind, accepting and including others who are similar and different from themselves. As a resource, please visit www.pacer.org/bullying, www.learningforjustice.org, and www.stopbullying.gov. Students can also visit www.pacerkidsagainstbullying.org.

**Optional** If you don’t have orange to wear and would like to purchase an official Unity Day t-shirt, you can visit: https://pacer.stcroixprint.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=341&product_id=3417 to order one. T-shirts are $12 each and they come in adult and youth sizes.
