Every Child Matters

By proclamation the board proclaimed September 30, 2021, as "Orange Shirt Day". 
 
La Conner School District staff and students observed “Orange Shirt Day” on September 30, 2021, to recognize the importance of remembering the Indigenous Children who died in the Residential Boarding School system while also honoring the survivors.
 
Wearing an orange shirt and using the slogan “Every Child Matters,” is an affirmation of our commitment to raising awareness of the Residential School experience throughout Canada and the U.S. The legacy of Residential Schools is something that has a significant impact on all tribal communities across Canada and the U.S.
