Purple Shirt Day October 18

Hey BPS!  Purple Shirt Day is this week!  There are many organizations and causes that ask us to wear purple to show support (Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, Children’s Aid Society – to name a few) but this week, wearing purple is in support of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Some of our Student Leaders, with a passion for equity, have prepared this message for you in hopes of standing together against bullying directed at those people who identify as 2SLGBTQ+

“On Thursday October 18th, help Bakersfield Public School support the 2SLGBTQ+ community by wearing purple! Take part in spreading a diverse and safe message, while helping equality become a more significant part of our community. Be Bakersfield Proud and join us by wearing a purple shirt!”
