Pink Shirt Day across Canada is Wednesday February 27th. This day originated in Nova Scotia when two students organized the day to protest against bullying in their school. They distributed pink shirts to all of the boys to wear in empathy with a boy who was being bullied. The day has grown over the years and now we are all asked to wear pink on this day to help stop bullying. A number of schools in ASD-N are marking this day, including us here at Sugarloaf Senior High. On-going anti-bullying campaigns are conducted throughout the school year.
We have a book fair that is happening right now at the SSHS Library. Come grab some great books and support our school at the same time. Tuesday February 26th - 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm
