Saint Joseph Episcopal School seventh-graders Treasure DuPont (left) and Jacob Jauch portrayed nerds in a student-written script about the importance of being kind and inclusive to all. The skit was among those performed during the school’s Unity Day.


Unity Day was celebrated recently with a morning prayer service and afternoon rally. Middle school students wrote and performed skits, while students in grades three to five performed “One Day.” Students wore blue to show their support of loving one another for their diversity and to demonstrate kindness, acceptance and inclusion.


Palm Beach educators Maureen Carter, Brad Weinberg, Tawny Anderson and Marie-Amalie Farris recently attended the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous’ Advanced Seminar for Holocaust Educators in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The seminar is an intensive graduate-level program in which a select group of educators who are already well-versed in Holocaust history are given the opportunity to study more focused topics relating to the Holocaust.

The school district will observe Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Feb. 2 and encourages businesses and organizations throughout the county to show students how their classroom lessons apply in the workplace. Students from kindergarten through 12th grade may participate.
