    Emerald Students Win NPFH Art Contest

    Emerald is proud to be a No Place For Hate School

    We had a very exciting and packed year at Emerald with our No Place for Hate Program!  Here are the highlights from last year:
    Our principal went into every classroom to teach her “Don’t Hurt a Heart” lesson.   This lesson helps students learn that it is important to “think before we speak or act” because it is hard to erase hurt once it happens.  
    All teachers taught their students about “B.E.S.T.” which stands for (Body, Eye Contact, Speech and Tone).  The various actions are taught, defined, modeled and practiced so that they can be at their “BEST” while being a student at Emerald.
    We had a group of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students that participated in a NPFH group that taught them how to be leaders and allies to each other and to others in our community.  
    We are very proud to be a No Place for Hate school and want to thank students, staff, families and community members for all they do to support this important message!
