This week is all about friendship and preventing bullying. Wednesday, Feb. 29th is Pink Shirt Day, when people will be wearing pink to support the message of “Bullying Stops Here!” To go along with anti-bullying week, all classes will be reading a story about friendship. The Kindergarteners will be reading The Crayon Box That Talked by Shane DeRolf, a story about working together and accepting differences.
The primary classes will be reading One of Us by Peggy Moss. Roberta goes to her first day at a new school and tries to fit in with many different groups of children.
Finally, the intermediate classes will be reading Bird Child by Nan Forler. This is a story about being a bystander and watching someone get bullied.
