CMS is No Place for Hate (Video)

“Cohoes Middle School is No Place for Hate.”

That’s the message CMS students are delivering to their classmates in an effort to make sure the school is a safe, inclusive and respectful place where everyone belongs! On Tuesday, students on the NPFH committee were going class to class, encouraging others to sign a pledge to do their part to help eliminate acts of bias or bullying.

No Place for Hate Pledge

  • I will seek to gain understanding of those who are different from me.
  • I will speak out against prejudice and discrimination.
  • I will reach out to support those who are targets of hate.
  • I will promote respect for people and help foster a prejudice-free school.
  • I believe that one person can make a difference—no person can be an “innocent” bystander when it comes to opposing hate.
  • I recognize that respecting individual dignity and promoting intergroup harmony are the responsibilities of all students.
Preparing our students for success in tomorrow’s world.
