Burgess-Peterson Academy implements the No Place for Hate® program, an Atlanta Public Schools district-wide initiative
Since 2015 APS has implemented the Anti-Defamation League's No Place for Hate® initiative District-wide.
Each year all APS schools, including BPA, participate in programs around the goal of creating a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying.
Below are the three No Place for Hate® programs provided by Ms. Mellick, and in collaboration with homeroom teachers at Burgess Peterson Academy for the 2022-23 school year.
No Place for Hate® program 1: "Our BPA Family"
In December, BPA students took part in the first No Place for Hate® program. All students took part in a lesson on how our classmates and our school community are part of an important extended family. After reading the book, "Our Class is a Family," students reflected on what the BPA Family means to them.
No Place for Hate® program 2: Coming Feb. 2023
No Place for Hate® program 3: Coming March 2023
The No Place for Hate® Pledge
Another key component of No Place for Hate® is rallying our entire school around the program - making a commitment to make BPA No Place for Hate®.
