No Place for Hate is a program that was created to stop bullying and build a respect for people of all races and cultures. It works alongside other school programs to deliver the message of a “No Place for Hate” environment. William J. Scott Elementary has selected students from the P.O.W.E.R. Performing Arts Program to carry the name and responsibility of No Place for Hate Ambassadors. These students, led by Lt. Charles Rambo, took a pledge at the No Place for Hate assembly to uphold the promise:
I promise to do my best to treat everyone fairly
I promise to do my best to be kind to everyone even if they are not like me
If I see someone being hurt or bullied, I will tell a teacher
Everyone should be able to feel safe and happy in school
I want our school to be “No Place for Hate”
The Scott students watched a performance by the P.O.W.E.R. performers about bullying and what it looks like to be positive and respect others. The skit featured poems written and selected by P.O.W.E.R. students. The school also hosted a guest speaker from a No Place for Hate representative, Hollande Levinson.
