Painting Their Pledge

Grenloch Terrace Early Childhood Center Students Paint Their Pledge to Keep the School “No Place for Hate”


ecc no place 1a WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Grenloch Terrace Early Childhood Center students spent the morning of Thursday, December 5th, with painted hands, signifying a promise. The GTECC student body left their hand prints on the school’s “No Place for Hate” pledge banner.


The banner features a statement of promise that the “Grenloch Gardeners” will try to follow throughout the school year and beyond.


The promise reads:


I promise to do my best to treat everyone fairly.

I promise to do my best to be kind to everyone,

even if they are not like me.

If I see someone being hurt or bullied,

I will report it to a teacher.

Everyone should be able to feel safe

and happy at school.

I want our school to be No Place for Hate.
