Valley City Public Schools is excited to celebrate a day in our school district that will be focused on building kindness, respect, and inclusivit­y with our students, staff, and community. We are honored to be partnering with the North Dakota Special Olympics and welcoming two speakers that will present on our theme for the day and highlight individual­s with disabiliti­es and diversity. On Friday, March 3rd, VCPS students at Washington Elementary and the Junior/Senior High School will have the opportunit­y to attend a student assembly to celebrate kindness, respect, and inclusion.

Valley City Public Schools is committed to building a positive school culture that provides all students with a safe, respectful, and accepting learning environmen­t.

Erin Baumann

Erin has been traveling around North Dakota speaking with students and organizati­ons about inclusion and ending the use of the “R” word. Her powerful message will focus on the inclusion of all people, because she believes anyone, no matter who they are, can make a difference in the world! Erin helps others be aware of how the “R” word affects people with disabiliti­es. Erin wants you to know that everyone is important!

Ty Terry

Ty is a father, husband, educator, and coach in Valley City. He is a proud Hi-Liner. His message will focus on diversity and how each of us should treat each other with kindness and respect. Ty will talk about his childhood in Mississipp­i and North Dakota and how race and diversity has had an impact on his life. Ty will challenge students to end the use of the “N” word and any other derogatory slur or disrespect­ful language used toward other individual­s.
