Honoring Survivors of Gun Violence – #WearOrange (6/3-6/5)

#NELASchoolsRock #LDCChampionMentality #HighlandsCouncil #TenthDistrictPTSA #PTA4Kids #PTAProud

@Everytown Wear Orange is observed every June, when thousands of people wear the color orange to honor Hadiya Pendleton, shot and killed on a playground in Chicago on January 29, 2013, and the more than 40,000 people who are killed with guns and approximately 85,000 who are shot and wounded every year. Soon after this tragedy, Hadiya’s friends commemorated her life by wearing orange, the color hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others. (https://wearorange.org/)

#NELASchoolsRock #LDCChampionMentality #HighlandsCouncil #TenthDistrictPTSA #PTA4Kids

Don’t limit the STEM fun to school—bring the STEM excitement home and get the whole family involved in the fun.

@NationalPTA and Bayer have developed a series of hands-on activities families can do. PTAs can also package the activities into STEM at Home bundles for families.

Find additional at-home activities on our STEM Resources webpage.
