National Unity Day
October 24, 2018
UNITY DAY: Together against bullying. United for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to showing that you believe that all youth should be safe from bullying? Come together in one giant ORANGE message of hope, support, and unity. WEAR AND SHARE ORANGE to color our nation, and even the world, visibly showing that our society believes that no child should ever experience bullying. You can show you care about safe and supportive schools and communities by making your color ORANGE on Unity Day. This is a day that everyone can come together – in schools, communities, and online – to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
Red Ribbon Week is the week of October 22-26, 2018. These are our daily school themes:
Monday – Inside Out Day (Wear Clothes Inside Out) – “Don't Let Drugs Turn You Inside Out!”
Tuesday – Boots Day (Wear Your Favorite Boots) – “Give Drugs the Boot!"
Wednesday – Jeans Day (Wear Blue Jeans) – “Be a Jean-ius! Be drug-free!”
Thursday – Crazy Socks Day (Wear Silly Socks) – “Sock it to drugs!”
Friday – Favorite Team Day (Wear Favorite Team Shirt) - "Team Up Against Drugs!"
Red Ribbon Week Drawing Contest:
In honor of Red Ribbon Week and to promote drug-free awareness Warren Middle School students are encouraged to participate in a Anti-Drug/Anti-Bullying Drawing contest. The drawings should be done on an 8 1/2" X 11" piece of copy paper and should be placed by grade in the appropriate hallway outside the classrooms during the month of October. There will be 3 winners: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place for each grade level. Prizes will be announced later. Posters will be judged on creativity, originality, and impact (message it relays). Students must create their own drawing.
Since National Unity Day is Wednesday, October 24th, students may choose to use orange paper to promote National Unity Day, but this is optional. All drawings are due by Friday at noon on October 19th.
RED RIBBON WEEK DOOR DECORATING CONTEST:
In honor of Red Ribbon Week to promote anti-bullying and/or drug-free awareness, we are having a door decorating contest. Doors will be judged on these 5 categories:
Red Ribbon Week Theme (Anti-Drug Slogan/Message)
The door decorating contest is for Period 5A. Teachers who are gone at this time may choose another class to decorate their doors (Coach Cuthbertson, Mr. Hagler, Mrs. Katie Kuhn) to have students decorate their doors. Everyone is encouraged to participate, and those who do will need to have their doors decorated by Tuesday morning, October 23, 2018 for Parent/Teacher Conferences. Doors will be judged Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 24th), and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded to the winning classrooms. First place winning classrooms will go to lunch first and then have 45 minutes extra recess; 2nd place winners will have a 30 minute extra recess outside; and 3rd place winners will receive 20 minutes extra recess.
