HBT is No Place for Hate

Congratulations to the students and staff at Harry B. Thompson Middle School as it has been named a “No Place for Hate” school by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).                             

ADL’s No Place for Hate initiative identifies schools and communities who demonstrate a long-term commitment to combating bias, bullying and hatred while  leading initiatives for creating and maintaining a positive climate. Spearheaded by HBT’s PAL (Peers as Leaders) and Buddy Club, the school’s efforts included a Multicultural Week and Expo held in January to promote various cultures, “Cardio for Character Walk” and ”Steps Against Bullying” events to promote good health and acceptance and a cyber-bullying program titled “Don’t Press Send.”            

Members of the club recently attended a special ceremony held at New York University to honor the 127 No Place for Hate schools in New York State, where they received a banner to display in the school as a source of pride and reminder of the importance of the initiative.                                        
“It was a very special ceremony,” said PAL and Buddy Club co-adviser Randi Bloom. “We are very proud to be a part of this.”                            
This is the first year HBT has participated in ADL’s campaign.
