“David Shepherd, Travis Price and their teenage friends organized a high-school protest to wear pink in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied [for wearing a pink shirt]…[They] took a stand against bullying when they protested against the harassment of a new Grade 9 student by distributing pink T-shirts to all the boys in their school. ‘I learned that two people can come up with an idea, run with it, and it can do wonders,’ says Mr. Price, 17, who organized the pink protest. ‘Finally, someone stood up for a weaker kid.’ So Mr. Shepherd and some others headed off to a discount store and bought 50 pink tank tops. They sent out message to schoolmates that night, and the next morning they hauled the shirts to school in a plastic bag. As they stood in the foyer handing out the shirts, the bullied boy walked in. His face spoke volumes. ‘It looked like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders,’ Mr. Price recalled. The bullies were never heard from again.”

We are excited for our annual Jingle Bell Run this Friday December 20th after recess.
Students will attach their bells and take a jingly stroll around our neighbourhood.
Feel free to join us if you’d like!
We thank Lakewood PAC for funding our students’ breakfast and Santa photos on this special day!
It’s a good idea for your child to have a small breakfast as some students do not get their pancakes until closer to recess.
The class pictures with Santa will be sent home the following week!
We work hard to ensure that all students can participate regardless of any allergies or dietary requirements. If for some reason we are not aware of your child’s allergies or dietary requirements, please notify Allyson Ell, Pancake Breakfast Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org . She will be happy to work with you to ensure your child participates in this fun annual event.
