Pink Shirt Day Wednesday, February 27th

On  February 27th, it is Pink Shirt Day.  At Fernwood, four years ago, our PAC has kindly purchased 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. 

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?
