GWS: No Place For Hate
Last school year Gideon Welles School was selected as one of only eight schools in Connecticut to be designated a No Place for Hate School by the Anti-Defamation League. No Place for Hate is "a school climate improvement program that provides staff, students and their families with a framework to take a stand against all forms of hate and communicate a clear, unified message that all students have a place where they belong. " Once again, in 2021-2022 we are committing to be a No Place for Hate School.
