“Respect for All” Week

IMG_2133“Respect For All” Week is a Department of Education initiative that begins Monday, February 9th through Friday, February 13th throughout all New York City Public Schools. Together with our teachers, we will continue to build on the work that we already do as a school to support this initiative. During the week of RFA, we will be offering our students additional engaging and meaningful lessons that promote respect for diversity. Students will participate in activities that focus on preventing bias-based harassment, intimidation and bullying.

Let’s work together to deepen our students’ understanding of this important initiative. We encourage you to have meaningful discussions with your children and talk with them about the meaning and importance of respecting each other within our school and global community.
