Celebrating No Name Calling Week

Tooker Avenue students celebrated the annual No Name Calling Week with a variety of school-sponsored activities. Each day commenced with teachers reading a “No Name Calling Pledge,” and parents were encouraged to recite the pledge with children as well.

Students wore hats to school to address the daily theme of “Put a Cap on Name Calling,” and wore mismatched clothes to make the statement that students should address each other’s differences. In addition, students were encouraged to wear their clothing backwards to symbolize the theme, “Words Can Hurt and You Can’t Take Them Back.” The week ended with the students wearing sports apparel, symbolizing that they are good sports who treat each other like they are on the same team.
