No Place for Hate


We are so excited to become a No Place for Hate school this year!!!

So, what is No Place for Hate and what kinds of things will we do?

No Place for Hate means we will be a school that is accepting of everyone regardless of someone’s skin color, gender, race or ethnicity. Throughout this week your child has had the opportunity to sign the promise pledge both within their classroom, which will be displayed as a reminder of their promise. In addition to that, they have also signed the school banner that is displayed in the main hall near the front doors of our school. We are asking that parents (YOU) sign the banner as well to support our initiative to be a NO Place for Hate. Anytime you come to Rennell whether you’re here for lunch or as a Watch Dog Dad or when you come for parent conference day, please stop by and add your name to the banner.

Throughout the school year we will be doing many kindness activities and challenges to promote our goal of being a kind place and above all else a school that is a place for NO hate. We are excited to begin this endeavor and we look forward to an amazing 2019-2020 school year.

Below is the promise pledge:
