"Spread the Word to End the Word"

During the day on Wednesday, March 5th, everyone is invited to take an online pledge for the “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign.  The word "retard(ed)" is an exclusive, derogatory, and offensive word to refer to people with intellectual disabilities.  This campaign encourages people to stop using that word.  iPads will be available outside the cafeteria for you to take 10 seconds and make an online pledge in support of this.  Learn more by reading the posters around school.  The website is also identified on Passport’s Green Monthly flyer that were given to students in homeroom Monday morning. Tom Golisano is spearheading Rochester’s support of this for the 3rd year in a row, Golisano Foundation Site ,  Tom Golisano's video
