Elementary South Takes Part in Unity Day

On Tuesday, October 21st, students and staff recognized Unity Day 2014.  Unity Day, the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month, has been recognized in the United States since 2011. To participate in Unity Day, individuals, schools, communities, and businesses wear or display orange to show support for students who have been bullied.

Since 2012 Elementary South has been participating in Unity Day by linking the “anti-bullying message” with our school-wide Bernstein Unit. This year, our unit on MAKING CONNECTIONS reminds us that the more we can connect with and build bonds with others, the stronger it makes us as a community. We want children to feel safe at our school, so it is important to have conversations with children about how they feel at school. Unity Day is another opportunity for the whole school to come together and UNITE AGAINST BULLYING.

Make It Orange and Make It End!

On Tuesday, October 21st, Elementary South will take part in Unity Day 2014, sponsored by Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center.  On that day students are encouraged to unite against bullying by wearing the color orange to school.  For more information about Unity Day click here.

Students will also be participating in several activities that day focusing on making connections and creating bonds.
