    GCISD Takes a Stand Against Bullying in October

    In an effort to continue the work of Rachel’s Challenge, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD has announced three district-wide activities during the month of October aimed at promoting kindness, respect and compassion for others.
    • STOMP Out Bullying on October 5
    • Unity Day on October 21
    • Mix It Up at Lunch Day on October 27
    On Monday, October 5, students, teachers and staff are encouraged to wear a blue shirt as part of the STOMP Out Bullying Program. The Blue Shirt Day is a worldwide initiative to bring awareness and educate students, parents and school employees about the issue of bullying.  
    Unity Day, Wednesday, October 21, encourages everyone in the community to wear orange to show the GCISD communities are united against bullying and working together for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.
    Finally, on Tuesday, October 27, students are encouraged to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new on Mix It Up at Lunch Day. Last year, more than 6,000 schools and more than three million students participated nationwide.
    As part of GCISD’s strategic plan, LEAD 2021, the promotion of good citizenship and demonstration of mutual respect are strategic objectives that are focused on district-wide. Rachel’s Challenge, with the addition of these three opportunities in October, provide students and staff the opportunity to make a difference not only in their schools, but also in the community.
