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.

Congratulations to the students and staff at Harry B. Thompson and South Woods middle schools, as both have been named No Place for Hate schools for the 2017-18 school year by the Anti-Defamation League.

ADL’s No Place for Hate initiative identifies schools and communities that demonstrate a long-term commitment to combating bias, bullying and hatred while  leading initiatives for creating and maintaining a positive climate. HBT’s Peers as Leaders and Buddy Club was instrumental in coordinating schoolwide activities that qualified the school for the designation this year, while South Wood’s Action, Acceptance and Awareness Club was a driving force in solidifying its school’s stature. This is the second consecutive year HBT has received the designation.

Syosset High School also hosted a school-wide assembly to kick off its campaign to receive No Place for Hate designation in the 2018-19 school year. Principal Dr. Giovanni Durante spoke about how he was inspired by the work of the students, and several students recounted their own experiences with bias and students standing up for their peers. The school unveiled a banner of its own for students to sign and pledge to uphold the qualities of a No Place for Hate school.

Representatives from both HBT and South Woods middle schools are pictured here displaying their respective No Place for Hate banners, which were awarded by the ADL. In the alternate photo, students and faculty from Syosset High School display the banner for their campaign to earn No Place for Hate designation next year.
