On Jan. 23, South Middle School hosted an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) training event for No Place for Hate coordinators from across Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens.

This full-day training session brought together more than 40 educators to learn, reflect, collaborate, and develop plans to enrich the No Place for Hate programs in their respective schools.

Under the direction of three ADL trainers, No Place for Hate coordinators participated in full-group discussions and small-group activities in the South Middle library. Attendees received guidance and resources to help further develop their schools’ programs in line with ADL best practices.

South Middle was proud to partner with the ADL to offer this valuable training for educators across the Island. The No Place for Hate coordinators at South Middle are Katie Dervin and Kirsten Kuhn.

South Middle is recognized by the ADL as a Gold Star No Place for Hate school for its commitment to celebrating diversity and promoting respect. The No Place for Hate program provides a model for combating bullying, racism, and prejudice in schools.
