    WHITE PLAINS UNITY DAY
    Districtwide Special Event to honor National Bully Prevention Month
    October 19, 2022 - Wear and share ORANGE to show unity in kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
    Unity Day is the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month.  This is a day when we can come together in one giant, ORANGE message of hope and support.
    The call to action is simple!  WEAR AND SHARE ORANGE to show unity for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion and to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying.
    The goal of the day is to bring together our community to emphasize the message that bullying is not acceptable and that all students deserve to be safe in school, online, and in our community.
    We encourage you to explore the official Unity Day Guide: www.pacer.org/bullying/nbpm/pdf/unity-day-guide.pdf  to learn more about Unity Day and the ways in which we can each prevent bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion.
    Feel free to contact the Special Needs Committee: wpspecialneedscommittee@gmail.com  with questions or ideas.  We look forward to making this an amazing day for the White Plains School District!
