No Place for Hate

 Smyrna  Elementary School is now a No Place for Hate certified school.  This means that we have a fully developed anti-bullying program that documents and allows investigation into bullying referrals.  Each year we will re-certify by conducting activities and projects to bring the No Place For Hate culture into our school and community.

Come see our banner that hangs in the front hallway outside of the cafeteria!

The No Place for Hate
® Initiative



No Place for Hate® is an initiative of the Anti-Defamation League offered free to schools.

The initiative is designed to rally the entire school around the goal of stopping all forms of bias and bullying. No Place For Hate® provides a unique framework to incorporate new and existing programs with one consistent message. No Place For Hate® can help your school foster a culture of respect and create a safe, bully-free learning environment for students at all grade levels.

Definition- Bullying is aggressive behavior that is repeated over time, intentional, and involves an imbalance of power (one-sided).

Forms of Bullying

  • Bullying can be physical, verbal, psychological or any combination of these three.
  • Bullying behaviors can include name-calling, obscene gesturing, malicious teasing, rumors, slanders, social exclusion, damaging a person's belonging, threats and physical violence.

(Remember RIP when reporting- Repeated, Intentional, and Power–based)
