To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month and show their unity in the fight against the disease, students and staff throughout the North Bellmore School District wore pink on Oct. 15. Their bright wardrobes made quite an impactful statement in showing their support for all who have battled breast cancer.
The district’s “Pink Out” day was a huge success as pink shirts could be found in every classroom. Students also found other ways to incorporate the color into their outfits including hair scrunchies, pants, shorts, socks and even face masks. Teachers and staff also made donations to the American Cancer Society, filling up jars at each elementary school.
