‘Spread the Word’ Campaign

Partnership in Art students, led by Mrs. Curley, asked the student body and faculty at HHS for help to Spread the Word to End the Word. By signing a chain link, HHS pledged to show respect, value, accept, and include everyone. The links were attached together and hung in the cafeteria March 7 to show how embracing our differences connect us all.

“Hearing the R-Word makes people with intellectual disabilities, and those who love them, feel like less valued members of humanity,” Mrs. Curley said. “Be an advocate for respect and inclusion by joining us in the on-going campaign to stop the use of the R-word and pledge Respect for everyone.”

Together we can create a community of acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities, and for everyone.
