The next and final Colors for Caring Day is on Monday, May 2nd, and MISD encourages you to take part in this community-wide initiative!

What is Colors for Caring?

On the first Monday of each month in the 2015-16 school year, Mansfield ISD is encouraging the community to wear a color that represents a cancer that affected the life of a loved one. (View a cancer color chart here.)

Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas is very grateful for the support he received during his bout with thymoma cancer this past October, so he wants to spread the power of community support through this Colors for Caring initiative.

“It is amazing to me how many of our MISD family’s lives have been touched by cancer,” said Dr. Vaszauskas. “I can personally attest to the power of community support and want others to know and experience the same through our Colors for Caring initiative.”

Please share pictures of how you are participating in the Colors for Caring Days by using the hashtag #ColorsForCaring on Twitter and Facebook. You can also email your pictures to
