Mount Vernon STEAM Academy kicks off its No Place for Hate intiative
On December 22, 2022, Mount Vernon STEAM Academy kicked off its No Place for Hate initiative with Unity Day. Students brought white t-shirts to school to decorate.
No Place for Hate is an initiative designed to engage students and staff in dialogue and active learning on the topics of bias, bullying and inclusion. During their 3rd-period classes, students dove into deep conversations about bullying and inclusion.
Afterward, they decorated their t-shirts with inclusive, anti-bullying, and anti-racism slogans and statements. Students collaborated by writing statements and creating artwork on each other's shirts. A No Place for Hate student-produced video was shown during 3rd-period classes as well.
