Stop Bullying Week at MRHS:

  • Today is “Pink Shirt Day”!
  • Decorate Your Classroom Door Pink with judging to take place on Friday.
  • Pave it Pink is a “pay it forward” idea.  We will have pink t-shirt cutouts for teachers, students and staff to write positive “pay it forward” acts of kindness shown to others throughout the week.  The t-shirts will be hung on the wall in the hall to see if we can make a “clothes-line” or “highway” of t-shirts throughout the school starting from the front entry, down the main hall and upstairs and back again.  Each act of kindness no matter how big or how small will be put up on the walls.  Let’s see if MRHS can fill the halls with kindness next week! When you have pink shirts filled in please bring them to the library.
  • Wear pink on Wednesday.  There are “official” Pink shirts available at Mark’s Work Wearhouse for $10 but any pink will do.  A picture will be taken just before lunch of all the pink!

This survey, which is implemented by UPEI and the PEI Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, collects information and youth perspectives on multiple health behaviours such as healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco and alcohol use, school connectedness, and more. Following the completion of the survey, MRHS will receive a comprehensive School Health and Profile Summary. MRHS students are scheduled to complete the survey on Friday, March 1. Parents should receive permission letters for their children in the mail. If you do not receive a letter, you can obtain one at the main office at MRHS.  More information about this survey is available at http://www.upei.ca/cshr/SHAPES.
