Principal's Message

John Baldwin Community,

Over the past few months we have been sharing our efforts in regard to being a No Place for Hate Designated School. Over the course of the next two weeks, all of our students will be working towards creating a 'Respect Tree' in art class. Mrs. Herman, our art teacher, will be reading Todd Parr's book, It's Okay to Be Different. Students will then have a class discussion about ways we can show respect to each other. Following the discussion, students will trace their hand and make a commitment to how they plan to show respect to others. These hands will form the leaves of a giant tree that will be placed in our multi-purpose room, art room, and maybe even the library!

Thank you to Mrs. Herman for helping to bring this whole school activity to life!

Sincerely,
Joe Romagna
