Wear Pink to End Bullying!
I may be a "bull moose" but I am certainly against "bullying"!
I am proud to say that I was a participant in theWear Pink to
End Bullying Day!
I live in Mrs. Boekhouts Grade 2 Nestor Elementary classroom, in Coquitlam. My school is 100% pro-active, because all grades K to 5 participate in the WITS program!
T=Talk about it
and we also have our very own Nestor Pride motto:
Be Be Be
S = Safe
T = Trustworthy
O = hOnest
You should have seen all the PINK SHIRTS at our Good Stuff Assembly on February 27th! Our school is PRO-active and FUN-tastic!
I am lucky to be a traveling stuffie, which means I have been all around the world, visiting classrooms and many other exciting places. One of my special friends, Jean Armour Polly (www.netmom.com), introduced me to William Belsey a few years ago (we got to go paddle-boating with Auntie Jean in Washington, USA!) and he told me all about his anti-bullying program. He started one of the first Canadian anti-bullying websites back in 1999! www.bullying.org/public/frameset.cfm
So.... THINK PINK!
Be... KIND TO OTHERS!
Be... part of the SOLUTION, not the problem!
