Pink Shirt Day!

(February 2019) Once again, students, staff and school communities of the Algoma District School Board (ADSB) will be wearing pink on Wednesday,February 27th to show support for “Pink Shirt Day”, a national anti-bullying campaign.

This year's theme is: BE KIND. ONLINE. ALWAYS!
ADSB Student Senate members have annually taken a lead role in this initiative and are in the midst of setting up activities designed to encourage their schools and school communities to take part.  At ADSB schools, the event has evolved into a day of celebration with a concerted focus on recognizing  the importance of promoting the acceptance of all. 
In addition to wearing pink, students and staff are planning assemblies and rallies and are fundraising through the sale of pink cotton candy.

In your home, at school, in the office or out in the community, join the Algoma District School Board by wearing pink on Pink
