Spread the Word to End the Word!
Spread the Word to End the Word is an on-going effort to raise awareness of the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word "retard(ed)" and encourage people to pledge to stop using the R-word.
This year the national event took place on March 5th and Green Valley was definitely showing our support! Many of our staff and participants purchased this year's brightly colored t-shirts and proudly wore them on this day and many days since.
Two local events are planned to take place on March 20th at the Beaver Dam Middle School & High School. Students, teachers, and other faculty will be taking the pledge to rid their vocabulary of this work and replace it with RESPECT!
