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.
