Unity Day – Wednesday, October 21, 2020
Unity day is about uniting together for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
The “Unity Day Project” Anti-Bullying Video was a language arts project that involved six different classes coming together as one. Students worked hard to create something special that hopefully might change the way that people treat one another.
Wear and share orange to show that we are together against bullying, and united for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.

“ORANGE provides a powerful, visually compelling expression of solidarity,” said Paula Goldberg, Executive Director of PACER Center. “Whether it’s hundreds of individuals at a school wearing ORANGE, store owners offering ORANGE products, or a community changing a landmark to ORANGE, the vibrant statement becomes a conversation starter, sending the supportive, universal message that bullying is never acceptable behavior.”
October is National Bullying Prevention Month – A month-long event to prevent childhood bullying and promote kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
“More than one of every five school-aged children report being bullied,” said Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which sponsors Unity Day and founded National Bullying Prevention Month in 2006. “By wearing and sharing ORANGE on Unity Day, we can send the unified message that we care about student’s physical and emotional health and that bullying will no longer be accepted in this society.”
