CULTURE AND CLIMATE CLIFFNOTES
In Our Schools:
December has been quite a busy month in our schools. Each school participated in a variety of activities for Inclusive Schools Week as well as honoring the victims of Sandy Hook.
The SAVE Promise Club at CHS focused on the 14 days of action and shared announcements each morning. Students were encouraged to wear green on 12/13. Wreaths were made by the students in which they expressed ways to spread positivity and prevent violence.
The teacher cadets from Mrs. Balseiro's classes treated our second-grade students to the read-aloud Elmer, the Patchwork Elephant during Inclusive Schools Week. The cadets read to the students while creating a space to discuss how we all have differences that make us unique.
Cranford 44 for 44, an energetic activity created by our Social Emotional Learning facilitators was shared throughout our school community. The goal of this district initiative was to set goals and intentions to honor those lost and empower our youth to unite through positive actions in their community.
All of our schools completed activities for the No Place for Hate designation. Students signed pledges to support caring for self and others while becoming upstanders.
