February 27th- Pink Shirt Day

Big picture
Next week is Kindness Week in Hoover City Schools and we will celebrate as all schools in Hoover City Schools will wear pink on February 27th. Wear your shirt you purchased through the school or if you didn't, grab something pink and make your statement!

Kindness Week focuses on anti-bullying and growing a community of kind and caring students who think of others. We are looking forward to wearing pink that day to remember that WE CHOOSE TO BE KIND!
