Mansfield ISD is encouraging the community to wear a color that represents a cancer that affected the life of a loved one during Colors for Caring Mondays.
The Colors for Caring days for 2020-21 are:
- Monday, October 5

- Monday, January 11
- Monday, February 1
- Monday, March 1
- Monday, April 12

The Colors for Caring initiative was implemented by former superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas in 2015 after the overwhelming support he received during his bout with thymoma cancer.
