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 messages 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 would recommend that parents preview these trailers prior to watching them with their children. There are a few, especially in the Grade 4-6 category, that might not be a good fit for some students depending on their comfort level with the different topics. The older category obviously is for students beyond the elementary school level. It is always a wonderful fundraiser for us, bringing in hundreds of new books to both the library and classrooms. A big thanks to Ms. Bouvier for coordinating the Book Fair as well as all of you that purchase!
