Once again, West Ridge has earned the “No Place for Hate” designation from the Anti-Defamation League of Austin. We’re proud of the work that goes in to making our campus more aware of issues affecting our school climate. Our administrators, counselors, and teachers work with the students to hopefully create a safe place in which every student feels they belong.
No place is perfect, of course. Perhaps you feel that West Ridge could do better…or that you yourself could do better when it comes to treating everyone with respect. We’ve all atttended the assemblies and had the classroom lessons: we know what we are supposed to do when we hear or see another being made fun of, excluded, or threatened. It’s up to us to do what’s right and kind.
When we see this banner hanging in its place next to the previous years’ banners, let’s all think about what we are doing (or not doing?) to make WRMS no place for hate.
