What's In Your Backpack?
The 2015 Stand Up. Speak Out. Day Of Action is coming!
Stand Up. Speak Out., CCRSB’s board-wide day of action promoting anti-bullying, Social Justice, and positive, healthy relationships will happen on Thursday, September 17, 2015.
This year Stand Up. Speak Out. is shifting to a wide focus on Social Justice and those things that make us all unique, beautiful, different and the same. Our theme is, “What’s in your backpack?”
We all carry “backpacks” made up of our class, our gender, our sexual orientation, our abilities, our race and much, much more. As a community, we all have a responsibility to try and understand and accept what’s in someone else’s backpack.
Tell Us - What’s In Your Backpack?
We want to know what’s in your backpack. Tell us what makes you, you. Are you a musician? A great reader? A LEGO maniac? A champion hot dog eater? An up and coming comedian?
You can write a poem, draw a picture or poster, take a selfie, make a short video…do whatever you want to show us what’s in your backpack!
Submissions will be used at the regional event on September 17 and posted to our website, Facebook page and Twitter feed each Wednesday, throughout the school year, to keep the message going in classrooms, offices and special events.
We're accepting submissions throughout the school year, but we'd love to have as many as possible by September 16, 2015.
