Pink Shirt Day - Feb. 22


The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a male ninth grade student in their school was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. We encourage everyone to wear pink to show their support for being kind to others and to treat others with respect.

Please join us for an information session aimed to help you support your child as he/she begins to engage in daily “home reading” activities at the Kindergarten level.
