Palmer is NO Place for Hate
Palmer is proud to be an Anti-Defamation League No Place for Hate® school.
We are committed in making out campus a safe school with a culture that values all students and staff. We encourage you to visit this page often to see the amazing things that we are doing to:
- Build an inclusive and safe community in which respect is the goal, and all students can thrive.
- Empower students, faculty, administration and family members to take a stand against hate and bullying by incorporating new and existing programs under one powerful message.
- Engage out school and community through the implementation of at least three campus-wide anti-bias activities per year, which ADL helps to develop.
- Send a clear, unified message that all students have a place to belong.
In August, Palmer created our “No Place for Hate®” coalition team which is made up of students, staff and community members. Together we will help facilitate 3 campus-wide anti-bias and diversity related activities throughout this school year. In September we took our first step toward becoming a No Place for Hate® campus by having students and staff sign the Resolution of Respect.
In September we hosted our first NO Place for Hate activity which we titled “All Pieces Fit”. We had all of our students and staff members draw a self-portrait. Each grade level used the same monochromatic color to create their portrait to signify how we are all similar.
October is Bully Awareness month. Every Wednesday we will wear Blue to support our vision of our school we are a Bully Free Campus. The final week of the Month we will “Hug Our School” as we surround our school and state the No Place for Hate Pledge.
February we will have a week of various activities for Multicultural Awareness Week. We will appreciate various cultures where our students will learn to appreciate their similarities. There will be a mix-it up luncheon where students will have time to celebrate one another’s similarities and differences. We will have an assembly and students choir programs during that week.
