Newell Elementary School Celebrates
Peace Week (10/15-10/19)
The third week of October is Violence Awareness Week in NJ schools. Newell Elementary School has always celebrated this week by cultivating peace and our CARES program. To enhance this awareness, Mr. Rowley will continue to deliver curriculum that introduces the idea that “peace is getting along”, along with the goals for the introductory lesson which essentially celebrate our differences and identify when people (bullies) are MOPTHS (mean on purpose to hurt someone).
In addition, Friday, October 19th will be designated as “Unity Day”. Newell will be united in peace on Friday, so show your class colors, your peace signs, your CARES gear, or your red!
Throughout the week, please remember to reinforce the message that we all are joined in getting along despite our differences.
