On  February 26th, it is Pink Shirt Day.  At Fernwood, five years ago, our PAC provided enough pink shirts for the entire school to wear.  We use fabric markers to write messages of kindness and friendship on the shirts, which then get passed on to the next year's group of students to read and add to.  We will be speaking about it at our Whole School Meeting Monday. 

February has a friendship and kindness focus, so students in your child's class may be familiar with this topic.  Some questions you can ask at home:
  • what kind things have you done at school lately?
  • what kind things have you seen other students do?
  • what do you do when you see someone being unkind to another person?
  • why is it so important that we keep kindness as a focus in our community?
