Diversity Day at WMS




7th graders at Whitewater Middle School participated in a Diversity Day on Wednesday, February 11th. WUSD Student Counseling Services kicked off the day with activities designed to reinforce messages that students received during a Courage Retreat Program that was held in the fall. Students were reminded and encouraged to use kind words and respectful actions towards each other and along with the importance of treating others as you would like to be treated in their circumstances. Special activities were held to encourage students to "mix it up" and reach out to new friends.

Students watched and participated in a fun game of wheelchair basketball directed and led by the UW-Whitewater Cornerstone for Success group. Six groups of five students were able to experience firsthand the difficulties that the physically challenged must overcome to play this sport. Students further learned about the difficulties and limitations of being wheelchair handicapped as they listened thoughtfully to Whitewater resident, Amy Bleile. Amy shared her experiences and answered student questions.

Other UW-Whitewater groups and community members also played a significant part in the day. UW-W Black Student Union led by Janay Alston shared with students what it is like to be a minority within a different culture. Middle School Dean of Students, Mark Maas, led a presentation about "Acts of Kindness and how to be a Top 20 Person". WUSD Director of Pupil Services, Lanora Heim, helped students understand and experience different learning disabilities. 

It was a great learning day for students and the help and cooperation of UW-Whitewater students and advisors was very much appreciated by all. Students learned that we all need to make more of an effort to get along with each other and how very important it is that we do so.
