February 26 is Pink Shirt Day – Lift Each Other Up

February 18, 2020



Grande Prairie, AB –
Lift Each Other Up is the theme of Pink Shirt Day 2020. This year's message encourages us to look beyond our differences, on Pink Shirt Day and every day, and instead focus on celebrating the things that make us unique. The Pink Shirt Day website says, "By lifting each other up, we see past the things that separate us to the things that unite us."

In addition to wearing pink on Wednesday, February 26, many PWPSD schools are hosting special events or activities to raise awareness and show their commitment to creating welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments.
