No Name-Calling Week on Jan. 16-20


No Name-Calling Week on Jan. 16-20

January 6, 2023

The Warwick Valley Central School District will once again be participating in the annual, nationwide No Name-Calling initiative.  January 16th – 20th, 2023 will be designated No Name-Calling Week in our schools with the emphasis on “Celebrating Kindness”.  At Park Avenue Elementary School this year, our theme will be “Leave Footprints of Kindness Where Ever You Go”!

In an effort to highlight kindness as an alternative to name-calling and teasing, each student will have an opportunity to color, decorate and write a positive affirmation on their “footprint” which will be displayed throughout the main lobby hallway.  In addition we are celebrating No-Name Calling Week with a variety of fun activities each day.  

Tuesday, January 17th  – Blue Day
Wear blue, the color of bullying awareness, to show your support for No Name-Calling Week!

Wednesday, January 18th– Red, White and Blue Day
Wear red, white and blue with the idea that united we stand, divided we fall!

Thursday, January 19th – Wear a shirt with a number on it
Wear a shirt with a number on it to show that everyone counts!

Friday, January 20th- Purple and Gold Day
Wear purple and gold, our district colors, to reinforce the idea that We Are All on the Same Team

Each student will receive a pre-cut footprint (thanks to the Student Volunteer Committee)!  At some point during the week,  each student will write or draw a positive affirmation that reflects their idea of being kind. When completed, we will then display them around the walls of the main hallway to give students the opportunity to read what others have written.

Thank you in advance for helping your children participate in No Name Calling Week at Park Avenue Elementary School. We will continue throughout the year to emphasize the need to “Leave Footprints of Kindness Where Ever We Go” and “Celebrate Kindness”!
