Equality Charter Middle School Takes the Sandy Hook Promise

February 14, 2017

Last week, Equality Charter Middle School scholars participated in the “Sandy Hook Promise,” which was coordinated by the Student Council. The “Sandy Hook Promise,” was founded after the Sandy Hook shooting, in an effort to promote teaching scholars how to reach out to other scholars who may feel socially isolated.  You can find more information about this effort here.

Some of the activities scholars participated in last week included:

“Hey Day”

Scholars made a custom name tag and were encouraged to say “Hey” to people they do not know.

 “Positive Day”

Scholars wrote a positive post-it note for a teacher, friend or family member

“Mix your clique day”

Scholars participated in a mix and mingle and ate lunch with students from a different cohort

“Wear Green Day”

Scholars and Staff were able to wear green for those who lost their lives during Sandy Hook, and donate money to the cause. We raised over $60! 

Friday- No one eats alone day

Scholars ate lunch in a circle, so that everyone ate together.

Thank you to everyone who participated and for student council for coordinating a very meaningful week!
