Students from Liberty Middle School are encouraged to help spread awareness about bullying prevention by wearing orange on Unity Day, Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Unity Day is sponsored by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center and it’s a day for everyone to come together and spread positive messages by wearing the color orange, which represents of support, hope, and unity.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Unity Day exists as a day to raise awareness and help put an end to bullying.
When you unite with the people around you, you can make a difference in your community and in your school,” said Liberty Middle School Assistant Principal Richard Schacher. “Last year dozens of parents, teachers, community members and businesses came together and supported the cause.”
Help the middle school send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity:
• Wear ORANGE. Even if you’re not a middle school student or a parent of a middle school student, support the cause by wearing orange. It can be an orange t-shirt, tie, hat, wristband, socks, or even shoelaces.
• Make ORANGE go viral. Let your friends know why you’re “going orange” by posting about Unity Day on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Post your Unity pictures to the district’s Facebook page.
