QAIS “EMBRACE DIVERSITY” PLEDGE
We, the QAIS community, believe in embracing and celebrating diversity as a core value of who we are. Every student, staff member, and parent deserves to be treated with dignity and respect at all times. Our school was founded on the principles of honoring differences, developing global citizenship and promoting respect for all life. As a community, it is imperative that we show solidarity and constant vigilance to protect one another from speech, gestures, and actions that could be interpreted as hurtful or disrespectful toward anyone due to their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical attributes, disability, age, or socio-economic status. Therefore, we call on the entire QAIS community—parents, staff, and students—to help raise awareness and commit to EMBRACING DIVERSITY and upholding the founding principles of our school. The QAIS community believes it is our obligation to love and respect one another so we can bring our vision of a peaceful world one step closer to fruition. Throughout the course of the year, we educate students on how we can honor and celebrate the diversity of the human family in a multitude of ways. Please support our efforts at home by reinforcing the message of love and respect for ALL with your children. Together, we will do our small part to create a more conscious, harmonious world. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support!
