We extend our thanks and appreciation of the HMS Civil Rights Team, and their advisors, Ms. Mike, Ms. Agell, and Ms. Hill, for creating the CRT celebration of the second annual "Day Of Welcome", which took place on Thursday and Friday last week. Civil Rights Teams in over 250
schools across the state of Maine celebrated this day and welcomed all students as they arrived at their schools.
The mission of Civil Rights Teams is to support schools to reflect on and talk about the six categories that are protected under the Maine Civil Rights Law. Those categories include:
gender (gender identity and expression), race and skin color, national origin and ancestry, disability, sexual orientation and religion.
Thanks to our Civil Rights team for their inspiring work and for spreading the message we welcome EVERYONE, , at HMS!
