The UES is excited to partner with our Unified Sports Advisors and our SpEAC parent group to celebrate Inclusive Schools Week. During the week of December 5-9 we will have a variety of themes and activities to help all of our students feel included and respected at the UES. Below is a theme for each day of the week:

Monday: Diversity Dress: Wear Bright clothes. “Don’t blend in when you are made to stand out” All students will get spirit tags in homeroom.

Tuesday: Equity Dress: Hats. “Hats off to Equity” Students will work with the MD and LLD classes at lunch to build a chain

Wednesday: Inclusion Dress: Moorestown or UES Swag. “We are all on the same team” The MD and LLD homerooms will lead games and activities on the playground—everyone is invited to join!

Thursday: Belonging Dress: PJ Day. “Dream of ways to include everyone” SpEAC representatives will be in the café to share a video.

Friday: Respect Dress: Wear Orange. Wear orange to unite against bullying. Hang your banner outside your room to show your inclusive spirit.

Our December Character Strong Theme is EMPATHY!

Our Character Strong theme for the month of December is Empathy. Students will engage in lessons during Morning Meeting that relate to Empathy. We look forward to helping our students have a better understanding of what empathy is and how to show empathy in their daily lives.
