The years of focusing on responsible behavior and no bullying at Scotia-Glenville Middle School have been noticed – the school was designated as a “No Place for Hate” school by the New York Anti-Defamation League during a ceremony at the University at Albany today.
The banner presented to the school also contains a Gold Star on the left, an indication that SGMS went beyond the basic requirements for the designation.
These students attended today’s ceremony with teacher Chris Adamek and counselor Lucia Dixon: Olivia Pierotti, Olivia Kaye, Delaney Krogh, Cole Holstein, Lucas Dempsey, Aidan Nichter, and Alec Hodge.
No Place For Hate is designed to enhance a culture of respect and to create a safe, bully-free learning environment for students at all grade levels. In compliance with the New York State Dignity Act, No Place For Hate offers schools the opportunity to be recognized for their staff development and student training related to bullying, harassment and discrimination.
