Sparkman Middle will become a No Place for Hate School this year

No Place for Hate is a program of the Anti-Defamation League that helps schools enhance or create a culture of respect.It is designed to celebrate diversity and empower students and teachers to stand up against prejudice.


We will complete the following three activities during the year:

  • No Place For Hate March: (10-21-16)~We will march around the campus to declare that our school is a No Place for Hate School. Each homeroom will design a sign to hold up and create a chant to sing. The class with the most creative sign and chant will receive a prize.
  • We will organize a Social Media Campaign that encourages people to act as an ally when confronted with instances of stereotypes, prejudice or bullying. (12-16-16)
  • Organize an Essay contest with a theme that is either personal experience with prejudice or a success story in the fight against it. The winner will receive a prize and their essay will be read at an assembly and will be on all the school’s social media sources. (2-17-17)
