Lynbrook Waverly Park School
Waverly Avenue, East Rockaway
As part of a school-wide initiative to amplify student voices, Lynbrook’s Waverly Park Elementary School participated in a “Walk and Talk Against Hate” on Oct. 18. During the walk, students circulated the school courtyard and listened for cues to stop and collaborate. At each stoppage, they collaborated to discuss important questions such as: What do you think bullying means? How can you be an upstander? What rules do we want to set when it comes to name-calling and bullying?
In addition to the walk, students also created posters which embodied the initiatives of No Place for Hate With, wore positive messages on their clothing and spread the message of acceptance to the Lynbrook community!
