DMS – No Place for Hate School Assembly – Apr 25

Dear DMS Community,

We have been working to have Desert Marigold designated as a “No Place for Hate School”.

Our final school wide activity will be April 23 – 25.

We are asking that all students will wear:

Warm colors on Monday 4/23:
Red is for LOVE,
Orange is for COMPASSION,
Yellow is for KINDNESS

Cool colors on Tuesday 4/24:
Blue is for ACCEPTANCE
Green is for RESPECT
Purple is for FAIRNESS

If students do not have these colors, braided bracelets will be available. On April 25th we will have an all school assembly and the students may wear any of these colors.

This final activity is being organized by the Peer Leadership, World of Difference students in the high school. The first activity was for every student to sign a promise, or resolution of respect. These are hanging on the barn wall near the entrance to school. The next activity was to have every student draw on post cards to Waldorf schools all over the world! This is in connection with 100 years of Waldorf education. The latest activity was the Friendship assembly that was held on February 14th, Valentine’s Day, where many classes sang, played, or spoke poems about friendship, unity, community and getting along.

If you would like more information about any of this, feel free to contact me.
