Join us for the inaugural Welcoming Schools’ Seal of Excellence Ceremony. Eleven schools and school districts will be recognized for their work engaging entire school communities to create welcoming, inclusive schools. Honorees will be coming from Minnesota, Washington, California, Texas and Florida.
Twin Cities area schools being honored are: Castle and Carver Schools (School District 622), J.J. Hill Montessori (St. Paul Public Schools) and Hiawatha Leadership Academy (Minneapolis).
Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius will provide opening remarks and J.J. Hill students will be singing a song and presenting a skit, both focused on a theme of “Peace.”
What Can We Do? Bias, Bullying, and Bystanders spotlights elementary school teachers from J.J. Hill Montessori and Hiawatha Leadership Academy generating open conversa-tions with students about the impact of bullying and the power of students standing up for each other.
