Important Election Meeting Notice
Orange Shirt Day
In support of Indigenous Communities, our First Nations students, their families, and Native American staff, we, the Shawano School District families, students, and staff were humbly requested to wear orange on September 30 in honor of Orange Shirt Day.
Orange Shirt Day, and the initiative behind it, started in 2013 in British Columbia, Canada. Orange Shirts are worn annually on September 30th to remember First Nations children. These children were dishonestly taken from their homes and sent to residential and boarding schools miles away for long periods of time without contact with their families.
Orange shirts are also worn to honor the journey of healing from the traumas of Indian Boarding Schools. The traumas experienced by thousands of First Nations children during this time still heavily impact First Nations people today. Wearing an Orange Shirt is one way that we can support their journey of healing.
