The No Place for Hate® Promise for Holy Name Catholic Elementary
· 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®.
For the second year in a row, Holy Name has been chosen as a Mix It Up Model School.
From Teaching Tolerance: Mix It Up Model Schools embrace respect and inclusiveness as core values—they “mix it up” all year long. These schools have done an exemplary job of organizing, publicizing and implementing Mix It Up at Lunch Day. By sharing their recipes for success, Model Schools are beacons for other schools striving for inclusiveness.
