To promote Pink Shirt Day, Feb 24, Birchwood is planning to have a Pink T-Shirt design challenge. Each homeroom will create a design/logo for an anti bullying T-shirt and submit them by Feb. 19. The shirt judged best will win a pizza party. If a class (or individual) completes their shirt design by Feb. 8, it will be submitted to the Crime Stoppers pink t-shirt contest which is offering a number of great prizes. Each design needs to be represented on pink Bristol board (Available in the guidance area) and handed into Lynn or Michelle by Feb.19 for our school contest and Feb. 8 for Crime Stoppers. Examples of some done last year will be in the front lobby tomorrow.The themes for this year are:
