Dobson Elementary students and staff celebrated Unity Day by wearing orange to stand united against bullying. We're all together in one giant orange message of hope and support. We wore orange to color our school, (and even our world) visibly showing that our society believes that no one should ever experience bullying. "This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to unite as one family out of respect and love for each other." - Dobson Elementary School Counselor, Steven Smith
