We participate in events sponsored by Kean University’s Diversity Council of New Jersey—a performance on diversity in the winter plus a conference for middle school students from around the state in the spring—as well as plan school-wide activities such as Mix It Up Day and a Multicultural Celebration. These events not only focus on diversity issues, but also allow the students to learn essential “life skills” such as leadership, project planning, teamwork and organization. We meet on a weekly basis to discuss prejudice and diversity issues at HeritageMiddle School and in the lives of our students.
This year-long club is for students who are interested in crossing social barriers and trying something new. This is a club that lasts for the whole school year, so anyone can join the club!
