Orange Shirt Day on Thursday, September 29

LFPS community, we are asking all of our students to wear orange on Thursday, September 29 to recognize Orange Shirt Day.  Orange Shirt Day is officially on September 30; however, this date is a PA Day this year.  Orange Shirt Day is to raise awareness of the tremendously detrimental impact of the Residential School System on Canada’s First Nations.  This time of the year is chosen as this was the time of the year that children were removed from their homes and placed in residential schools.  Orange Shirt Day also hopes to encourage all to come together in reconciliation.  If you are interested in learning more, please click here to visit the Orange Shirt Day website.
