It's PINK DAY!
Once again our school's climate committee put on an excellent assembly, inviting students to sing along to a Kids Helpline remake of Cindi Lauer's "True Colours" (see video below) as well as organizing a flash mob dance, which multiple students led, and all participated in.
Andrea U'Ren's Pugdog was also read aloud; it's a nice little story about a poor pup who gets gender stereotyped in misery, but is eventually understood again by his/her well-meaning owner.
As usual, though, there were some students whose parents intentionally kept them home, and I worry about the subliminal messages of intolerance those students are learning by such a move. :(
