No Place For Hate Leadership Rally at Oak Meadow ES
Oak Meadow Elementary School was recognized as a No Place for Hate school for the 2017-18 school year. This month they recieved an award star for their banner. The Student Lighthouse team was presented the award during their Red Ribbon Week rally where Dale Monnin and his Drum Café South team brought an exciting, inspirational and powerful experience that involved the student body in some drumming activities. The campus Student Lighthouse Team and the Peace Kids worked side-by-side for a No Place for Hate campaign and created a #weplaytogether theme.
“These students have signed a resolution for respect and this is awarding their efforts in being kind and respectful towards one another,” said Monnin. “The kids are finishing up with Red Ribbon Week so this assembly is all about making good choices as a Leader in Me school and being proactive.”
The No Place for Hate initiative provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school culture. No Place for Hate also helps to create and sustain inclusive school environments where all students feel valued.
Launched in schools in 2001 through the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), No Place for Hate is a popular initiative that has been embraced by hundreds of campuses.
