Colors for Caring Continues
ancer affects millions of people each year, and
at Mansfield ISD, we are wanting each person
affected to know that they do not stand alone. MISD
started its Colors for Caring initiative to visibly show
community support for a loved one who is battling or
has battled cancer.
The MISD Educational Technology team wore various
colors to support the cause.
On the first Monday of each month in the 2016-
17 school year, Mansfield ISD is encouraging the
community to wear a color that represents a cancer
that affected the life of a loved one. The initiative was
first implemented last school year.
The Colors for Caring Days for 2016-17 are: Sept. 12,
Oct. 3, Nov. 7, Dec. 5, Jan. 9, Feb. 6, March 6, April 3 and May 1.
We look forward to you participating in this #ColorsforCaring community initiative!

The month encompasses many important days in the Hispanic and Latino culture. Sept. 15 is the anniversary
of independence for Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile
celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day, or Día de la Raza,
is celebrated on Oct. 12.
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week, but later expanded to a month-long celebration.
