Dana Acknowledged As No Place For Hate School!
Posted on 05/20/2023

Dana Middle has been recently acknowledged by the Anti Defamation League as a No Place For Hate School. No Place For Hate (NP4H) is a program designed to engage students and staff in dialog and active learning around topics of bias, bullying, inclusion, and allyship. Students and staff identify issues that apply to the school, explore ways to address these concerns, and create small group and school-wide programs to help promote the development of an inclusive culture at school. 

Our NP4H club created a student survey to measure the pulse of the campus. They identified gossip, rumors, and name calling as an important issue. The club then met during lunch over the course of the year to explore the origins of this problem and the impact it has on students and staff. The club then created a multi-step program to address this problem. This included:

  • Posters to promote awareness
  • Presentations during grade-level assemblies
  •  Video commercials promoting positive ways for interacting with other students
  •  Classroom presentations around related topics

Our students spent hours of time researching and creating solutions to address the concern they identified. Thank you for helping to create a positive culture on campus! We would like to give a special shout-out to  Elizabeth Palacz, Sammy Nebula, Sabrina Cox, Linda Reardon, and Joseph Nelson who served as our club advisors. We couldn’t have done it without you!
