West End Earns No Place for Hate Distinction Photo thumbnail95909
For the third consecutive year, West End Elementary School was designated as a No Place for Hate School by the Anti-Defamation League for the 2017-2018 school year. West End is one of more than 1,800 schools from across the country to receive the distinction for promoting a positive, safe and inclusive learning environment for students.
 
To enhance a culture of respect in the school community, West End educators completed a needs assessment, formed a No Place for Hate committee with students and had students sign the Resolution of Respect, a pledge to making their school a No Place for Hate environment. In addition, West End successfully designed and implemented at least three school-wide activities throughout the year that focused on bullying prevention and anti-bias.   

The school was recognized by the Anti-Defamation League on May 25 with other New York and Northern New Jersey students and educators during a recognition ceremony at the Sheraton Hotel in New York City. They received a personalized No Place for Hate banner to display in their building.
