Students and staff at Chief Kanim Middle School participated in Unity Day on October 21, as part of National Bullying Prevention Month. Unity Day is a nationwide activity where communities unite to bring awareness of bullying prevention. It’s a time when everyone can come together — in schools, communities, and online — to send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that they are united against bullying and unified for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
At CKMS, everyone was encouraged to wear the color orange on Wednesday, October 21, and to sign a pledge to stand up against bullying. Students who signed the pledge received an orange bracelet to signify their support to end bullying. The pledge read:
I am a Kid Against Bullying! And I will SPEAK UP when I see bullying REACH OUT to others who are bullied BE A FRIEND whenever I see bullying “Together Against Bullying, United for Kindness, Acceptance and Inclusion”
The pledges were copied onto orange strips of paper then connected together to create a huge paper chain. Look for the Unity chain displayed throughout the commons, as a visual reminder of the school’s unity against bullying.
