NECSD Virtual Pink Day - Friday, October 16th
#TBT to the NECSD Pink Out event last year! For the last several years, NECSD has recognized Pink Day to honor those who have lost their battle with cancer. Pink Day was established by the faculty at Heritage and then it was continued throughout the district. This year, the Virtual Pink Day is scheduled for Friday, October 16, 2020. We ask that our NECSD community wear pink or any color that represents a tribute to fighting cancer. Photos can be shared with Communications@necsd.net.
Pink Day was established by Ms. Jonelle Format-Santo, a teacher at NFA Main Campus. "Pink Day was established at Heritage about 10 years ago in support of a colleague that was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. During her fight we would all wear pink. When I moved to SMS I continued the tradition of Pink Day along with Heritage as a way to honor our colleague who ended up losing her battle with cancer. Since coming to NFA I have made it a district event knowing that many of our faculty, staff, and students have been affected by not only Breast Cancer, but ALL Cancers."
