Ella White Elementary Takes Part in Unity Day 2016

Ella White Elementary was a sea of orange this morning as they honored Unity Day.

Unity Day is being practiced through out the nation today as a day for everyone to stand against bullying. Students wore orange and practiced different expressions of unity.

5th graders in Mrs. McInerney’s class worked on a flow chart to identify what bullying is, signed contracts promising not to be bullies, and more.

10 year old, Andrew Kamyszeki wrote a speech on what unity means to him. Kamyszeki encourages all kids to be nice and kind to each other.

“I think unity day is important because it reminds you to stand up for each other. So be nice, be kind and play with someone that’s alone at recess. Alpena Public Schools stands against bullying. We believe in being kind to each other and standing together as a united front,” Kamyszeki said in his speech.

Other students and classes created posters, anti bullying chains, and signs about bullying. Another group of students wrote and performed a unity song throughout each classroom.

Unity day is sponsored by pacer’s national bullying prevention center. If you would like more information on ways to prevent bullying visit pacer’s website at
