Dear Pine Hill Community,
National Inclusive Schools Week is December 4th - 8th. The 2023 Inclusive Schools Week theme is “Draw Me In.” During Inclusive Schools Week, all Westwood Public Schools will take part in activities intended to celebrate the diversity of our community and promote acceptance and inclusion of everyone.
Below is a list of some of the ways we will celebrate Inclusive Schools Weeks at the Pine Hill School:
- All-School Collage : Draw Me In
- Each grade-level will be assigned a color and each class will receive a set of blank paper squares in that color. Students and staff members are invited to draw a picture that represents/expresses something about themselves, reflects kindness and respect for others, or represents a way to include someone by “drawing them into” an activity or setting in our community.
- Once the artwork is complete, we will create a colorful all-school collage with the paper squares.
- Additional activities throughout the week:
- Class discussions about A gift I bring to the classroom/school
- “Five Minutes for Friendship” friendly conversations
- Students writing about how to be a good friend, including their thoughts on kindness, acceptance, and friendship.
- Complete the following sentences:
- “I feel included when…”
- “I feel included because…”
