Discover how our kids are being empowered to create their future!
What makes us different makes us beautiful. What makes us different makes us unique. We may all be different, but we all long to be a part of something and to feel included.
The Natrona County School District’s mission to empower every learner to be successful contributors to the community not only includes academic achievement but also learning to co-exist in a society that is accepting of all people.
NCSD’s Diversity Partnerships Committee has launched a campaign that encourages self-acceptance and self-respect. The “Respect Yourself” campaign will work to teach youngsters to value themselves first, suggesting that once you know your own wealth and contributions, you can begin to see the same things in other people. The district’s Parent Resource Center is taking the lead on speaking to students about this campaign and distributing colorful “Respect Yourself, Respect Others” wristbands to the students as a constant reminder of their worth. The multiple colors on the band signify the diversity and uniqueness in each person and the beauty everyone brings to their place in this world.
Diversity Partnerships works with community business partners to celebrate and encourage understanding of every learner’s unique ability in order to build a respectful, inclusive community. This group celebrates the things that make us different with this message: “Through these differences, we can become a powerful force to create change.”
NCSD’s Diversity Partnerships meets once a month and is open to anyone interested in advancing the group’s mission. Parents and students are strongly encouraged to become involved.
