Tomorrow is Unity Day: In Q1 we laid the foundation to welcome and connect students back to school. In Q2 we will continue to develop an inclusive learning environment where all students feel safe and learn. This week in advisory, students are learning strategies to recognize and address bullying and harassment. Tomorrow, Wednesday October 20th, is Unity Day in the DOE. We are encouraging students to come to school dressed in ORANGE to signify a commitment to stamping out bullying on our campus and in the school community.

Restorative Practices and Peer Mediation: Restorative practices at ʻĪao School are all about building community and strengthening relationships. This approach is based on the idea that when we feel part of a supportive community, we respect others in that community and become accountable to it. One way we accomplish this is through the Peer Mediation process. Next week Monday and Tuesday (October 25 & 26) the school is offering interested students two full days of training to learn the skills of being Peer Mediators. If you would like your child to participate please visit bit.ly/iaopeermedform by Wednesday night to complete the parent permission form. The number of students is limited to 35 and it fills up quickly. Students will be notified by Friday if they have ben selected for this opportunity.

Please use this link to learn more about Unity Day and Peer Mediation with a video from our Curriculum Coordinator Sandy Hanson.
