Student Leadership Opportunity - This year, as part of our ongoing work to make the Ipswich Public Schools more inclusive, we are participating in "No Place for Hate," a program supported by the Anti-Defamation League. This is a climate-improvement program that builds student leadership through engaging students and staff at all levels in age-appropriate projects and discussions around different forms of bias so that we continue to build a sense of belonging for all. It will support us in our efforts to provide a positive school climate for all learners, and to support diversity, equity and inclusion in all our schools.
To become a No Place For Hate School, the middle school based DEI team will be asking all students and staff to sign the No Place For Hate Pledge and engage in three school-wide initiatives aimed at engaging students in dialogue around the topics of identity, anti-bullying, diversity, equity and inclusion. Signing the pledge is not required but encouraged as we strive to spread the message regarding No Place For Hate. Up to this point, Mr. Fitz and Ms. Stewart have been working with a small group of eighth grade students, laying the groundwork for this year-long project. We are now in search of students at all grade levels to join our committee and assist in the planning and leadership of this initiative. If your child is interested in joining the committee, please fill out this quick Google Form to indicate your interest, we will also include this message in the morning announcements and students can sign up in the main office.
