• No Place for Hate & Anti-Bias Activities

    Humble ISD schools participate in anti-bullying and bias activities, and promote a culture and climate of respect that has no place for hate! This serves as a tremendous effort to end social aggression and bullying in our schools, while recognizing and celebrating the uniqueness of others. Our schools establish a coalition of students and staff in order to plan and implement multiple school-wide activities that are designed to support social & emotional wellness. This focus helps to stand up against bigotry and hate by promoting respect for diversity and global citizenship. Through campus based activities designed to promote a climate of respect, we are seeing positive interactions throughout our schools and community.

    Some of our No Place for Hate/Anti-Bias activities have included:
     
    Mix it up and create new relationships
    Mix It Up at Lunch Day is an international campaign that encourages students to identify, question and cross social boundaries.  We ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. It’s a simple act with profound implications that we encourage year-round to promote healthy, welcoming school environments. Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away.
     
    Peace gardens
    Peace Gardens are a great way to bring students together, the peace garden can be a symbol of hope for the future and a school's commitment to peace - peace within themselves and their school community, peace within the global family and peace with nature. They offer a space of quiet where people can go when in distress or to offer reconciliation to one another, during conflict resolution and mediation processes.  
     
    Celebrate Your Heritage
    It is important to celebrate our heritage because it is a time to share our cultures and for all of us to learn about our own culture and heritage and that of others.
