Thursday, May 12, is our third annual No Place for Hate Day celebration!
This year's theme is "Making A Difference".

Join us as we acknowledge the hard work of students, educators, parents and the entire No Place for Hate community by taking over social media with #noplaceforhate.

Here's the plan: Have everyone in your school community show up online on Thursday, May 12, 2022 and follow these 3 steps:
#1 BE CREATIVE: Post a photo or brief video with a caption that answers the question: This past year, how did No Place for Hate make a difference in my school community? 

#2 TAG: When posting, tag ADL’s national social media accounts by including the following handles:
Facebook: @anti.defamation.league
Instagram: @adl_national
Twitter: @ADL

#3 SHARE: Include #NoPlaceForHate in your caption. For Instagram stories, we've created a No Place for Hate sticker - just search NPFH!
Show your pride in our school and create an original piece of work that shows what it means to be a No Place For Hate School and/or how No Place For Hate has made a difference in our school.

You may create the following:
  • Original piece of artwork 
  • Poem
  • Essay
  • Original song or rap
  • Letter to the Anti-Defamation League

Please email or drop off your submissions with Mrs. K. by Friday, May 13th. Make sure they are labeled with your full name and grade (classroom if possible). Prizes will be awarded to the top 5 winners and all submissions may be posted in the Morning Meeting slides.
