Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Lord, as we begin Diversity Week, help me to appreciate the beauty that exists in every aspect of diversity. Amen

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. – Diversity Week 2016 (48 minute assembly)
R – Racial, E-Equity, S-Social Change, P – Peace, E – Empower, C – Culture, T-Together
This week we will be celebrating and honoring the rich diversity that is present at DeLaSalle High School and in the world. It is our hope that the events and programs that are planned for the week will provide a springboard into a yearlong and lifelong appreciation of the beauty that exists in every aspect of diversity.
Today we will gather for an assembly immediately following first period. All students and staff should move directly to the Florance Center for the program with a reminder that books, iPads, book bags, and other items should be left in your 1st period classroom.
Our guest today is Nothando Zulu, a Master Storyteller who has engaged audiences for over 40 years. In addition, Nothando has been teaching arts education as a COMPAS artist since 1999. Learn about African and African-American personalities, their lives, their contributions, their time, and their place in history. Figures include the likes of Fannie Lou Hamer (Civil Rights), Rosa Parks (The Montgomery Bus incident) and 100 year old Dewbert Thomas who talks about segregation, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, Black Power, Church and family.
A special thank you goes out to all of those students who dedicated their time and talents to preparing the school for diversity week. Please honor them by showing the greatest respect for the signs and poster throughout the school and also a special thank you goes out to the art department for providing wonderful art work throughout the Florance Center.
