North Kicks off "Spread the Word to End the Word" Campaign
Posted by Community Relations Department at 4/3/2012
North High kicked off the “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign, March 26 with an Assembly presented by the school’s Best Buddies Club. The goals of the campaign are to communicate to students that the “R” Word, “retard,” is derogatory and callous and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities. This campaign also contributes to the school-wide goals of being a safe, bully-free, accepting place for all students. The event included guest speaker Buddy Ambassadors from Best Buddies Arizona, student skits by North Best Buddies students and a video.
