Creekside is No place for HATE!

Dear Families,

 

Have you noticed the No Place for HATE promise posted around Creekside's campus? This year Creekside is working with the Anti-Defamation League, which was founded in 1913 to secure justice and fair treatment for all. The No Place for Hate program is geared toward giving students an opportunity to understanding the damaging impact that bullying and prejudice have on individuals as well as the social fabric of schools. The initiative is designed to rally our school community around the goal of stopping all forms of bias and bullying as well as fostering a culture of respect and learning. 

 

Creekside Comets will be learning about the No Place for Hate Promise this year and will participate in “No Place for Hate” school-wide activities that promote respect for differences, deepen understanding about bias and identity-based bullying and develop ally skills across our community.  Our first activity is bringing back Peacemakers to our playground to help students solve conflict and problems on our playground. Thirty Peacemakers are in the process of being trained to help guide all of our students in this important work. 

 

We encourage you to discuss this exciting initiative with your child. As part of No Place for Hate, and the commitment to being respectful and supportive of others, students will be encouraged to adopt the No Place for Hate Promise, as follows:

  • I PROMISE to do my best to treat everyone fairly.
  • I PROMISE to do my best to be kind to everyone – even if they are not like me.
  • IF I SEE someone being hurt or bullied I will tell a teacher.
  • EVERYONE should be able to feel safe and happy in school.
  • I WANT OUR SCHOOL to be No Place for Hate. 

To learn more or to get involved with No Place for Hate at Creekside, please contact Aaron Tarzian, Shirin Dodson, or Lauren Fitzsimons.  Together we can make our community a safe and welcoming space for all. 

 

Fondly,

Mr. T, Principal
