This year APS will celebrate Unity Day on Wed, Oct.19. Unity Day is a day to wear and share ‘orange’ to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying. Some ideas of how to participate:
- Wear Orange: A few ideas include tees, shoelaces, socks, sunglasses, wristbands, etc.
- Share Orange: Post images to social media, tag with #UnityEveryDay
