Dear Parents / Guardians, 

February 10th through February 14th has been designated as “Respect for All Week” in all of New York City public schools.  During this week, school communities will raise awareness of Respect for All, the Department of Educations program to combat bullying and harassment on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, or disability. “Respect for All Week” is a week of celebration of respect, kindness, diversity, difference, and tolerance.

 During the week we thought it would be interesting and fun to celebrate each day differently so…
