HHS Spanish Classes Recognize Anti-Violence Week

Howell High School students in Angela Reynaga's Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 classes marked School Violence Awareness Week by getting creative. Ms. Reynaga tasked the students with selecting an anti-violence slogan from a list in Spanish and creating a poster to reflect the slogan they chose. Students were to use positive images and creativity to get their message across. N.J.S.A. 18A:36-5.1 requires that all school districts designate the week beginning with the third Monday in October of each year as School Violence Awareness Week in New Jersey. At Howell High School, World Language students are engaged in creating anti-violence posters and vignettes that depict, "stamp out violence, bullying," with the hope of one day, making the world a better place to live.

Students in Jennifer Heir's Digital Media and Photography also created posters to mark School Violence Awareness Week. Rebecca Ghatan and Hannah Oister were selected as winners of the digital designs. 

Samples of the students' work can be seen below.
