Orange is the color that signifies support for students who have been bullied.  To commemorate National Bullying Prevention Month, Ridgefield students pledged their support by signing special anti-bullying banners in their school.  The orange wristband each student received in return demonstrates their support against student bullying — a symbol of unity they can wear for the entire month.

This month, in classrooms and planned assemblies in the district, students are learning how kindness, acceptance and inclusion help to prevent and put a stop to bullying behavior.
