Watervliet Elementary School has been designated a Gold Star No Place For Hate School for the second year by the Anti-Defamation League. This designation recognizes the elementary school’s commitment to creating a safe and inclusive learning environment for all students.
The No Place For Hate® initiative is designed to create inclusive communities and empower schools to challenge all forms of bigotry by promoting unity and respect, and reducing bullying, name-calling and other expressions of bias.
“We strive always to build a community that promotes respect, tolerance and acceptance for all students and staff in our school,” said Watervliet Elementary School Principal Kelly Webster. “I am thrilled that our school has again received this distinguished award that recognizes the efforts of our students and staff to create a welcoming and safe learning environment for all.”
