This week is anti-bullying week, we are asking you to pledge to be the one willing to stand up with courage and kindness when you see bullying.  We know that if one stands up, others will follow.  Standing up can mean stating something in the moment, inviting the targeted student to join other inclusive activities, and to report bullying to adults at home and school.  All Chico Unified Schools are joining together to stand up to bullying on Wednesday, today, February 22, you are encouraged to wear pink, following the theme established when two high school boys in Nova Scotia purchased pink shirts and handed them out to classmates after hearing that a new male student at their school had been harassed for wearing a pink shirt.  This is one example of the way we can all impact the kind of world we want to create for one another.  Families and community members can show their support by wearing pink tomorrow as well! For more info about the organization, inspiring stories, or the origins of Pink Shirt Day, look here: http://pinkshirtday.ca/about-us/.
