No Place for Hate (NPFH) Committee Update for April
The No Place for Hate (NPFH) committee has a message regarding our April theme of being an Upstander: Someone who stands up and speaks up for others.
Please click the link to hear our message
For the month of April, our No Place for Hate (NPFH) theme is to Be an Upstander. An Upstander is someone who speaks up and stands up for others. On April 12-16th we had an Upstander spirit week. Thanks to everyone for participating 😊
Every Thursday in April Activity sheets will be given to students to facilitate discussions at home.
Week of April 16th
- K-2nd grade students will receive coloring sheet with the topic of how to get help if they see someone being hurtful.
- 3rd-5th grade students will get a crossword puzzle with words that align with being an upstander and creating a culture of inclusivity. To see the answers to the crossword puzzle, please visit the Village Counselor’s website under the NPFH tab. Here is the link: https://sites.google.com/view/villagecounselorsoffice/no-place-for-hate
Families are encouraged to participate and have discussions
on the topics introduced each month.
Discussion questions for the coloring sheet for Grades TK-2
- How do you think the student who is getting hurt feels?
- Sad, embarrassed, hurt, worried, confused, angry
- Who can you go to for help if you were seeing something like this happen?
- How do you think it made him feel after someone stood up for him?
- Relieved, included, happy, safe, calm, good, important
We can all do our part to make everyone feel good by being an upstander; someone who stands up and speaks up for others.
Discussion questions for grades 3-5 crossword puzzle:
- What do these words mean to you?
- Which words describe your experience at school?
- What character traits or actions are you good at and which ones need improvement?
*Feel free to take a picture of your child’s coloring sheet with their name on it and email it to Ms. Slusher at Jennifer.email@example.com and she will display it at the NPFH page on the Village Counselor’s Website or drop your pictures off and we will display them around the school. If students feel extra creative, they can always make their own picture to turn in as well *
NPFH committee thanks everyone for participating 😊
