East Rockaway schools participated in a “Focus on Diversity Week" throughout the week of Feb. 13.

The event emphasized acceptance, inclusion and tolerance, and served as a celebration of the school’s diverse community. School social worker Amy Weissman and advisory head Cathy Corapi put together a list of activities and lessons for seventh-and eighth-grade advisory classes. Students created an "I Am Diversity" wall, where they each created a sign, using a sheet of construction paper, and wrote a statement about themselves in the way they understand diversity.

It was a wonderful week celebrating diversity, acceptance and belonging!
