Spread the Word Campaign

Allison F. Borchers, Principal

March 8, 2017

Last week, Thurston students had the chance to "spread the word to end the word" by participating in a campaign to end the use of the words "retard" or "retarded" as put-downs.  

The effort was spearheaded by Ms. O'Brien, 7th and 8th grade French and Spanish teacher. Working with a great group of faculty and student volunteers, she created an outreach video for kids to watch and discuss in advisories.  

On Wednesday, many kids signed a huge poster and pledged to not use the "r-word."   See some great photos from all three lunches in our web site photo gallery.
