No place for hate

    The Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate® (NPFH) initiative provides schools and communities with an organizing framework for combating bias, bullying and hatred, leading to long-term solutions for creating and maintaining a positive climate. No Place for Hate schools receive their designation by:

    ·  Building inclusive and safe communities in which respect is the goal, and all students can thrive.

    ·  Empowering students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message.     

    ·  Engaging schools and communities in at least three anti-bias activities per year, which ADL helps to develop.

    ·  Sending a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.  Lantern Lane Elementary has been a No Place for Hate recognized school for 11 years.  Our faculty, staff, and students take pride in participating in NPFH activities.

    Mix It Up Day!

    We completed our first NPFH initiative on November 14, 2017 by hosting Mix It Up Day during lunch time!  The Purpose of Mix-It-Up Day is to get students to sit with someone new and engage in positive and healthy conversations.  Each student received a different number as they walk in the cafeteria.  The students sat at the table where their designated number was displayed.  Primary students participated in a “find the pairs” activity while eating lunch. Intermediate students used note cards to ask questions and get to know their peer a little better.  Overall, Mix It Up Day was a huge success!
