Embrace and Celebrate Diversity

Embracing diversity encompasses acceptance and respect for all people.Differences can include, but are not limited to;race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, or political beliefs. Celebrating diversity is the exploration of these differences in a caring, safe and supportive community.

We encourage all students, staff, and families to make a commitment to:
      • Set a positive example for family, friends and your community
      • Speak out against prejudice, intolerance and injustice.
      • Work to recognize and overcome your own biases

Have you ever wanted to speak out against injustices? Are you interested in making a difference in how people treat each other? Do you want to work with other students and adultswho have similar interests?

South Kitsap School District has Builders of Unity Clubs at each secondary school. Students and parents who are interested in learning more information about the clubs are encouraged to contact the club advisor.

The clubs provide activities to increase multi-cultural, global and diversity awareness in our schools and in our community. The clubs are very active during the school year and work together on projects and events.
