Inclusion Week 2024

Inclusion week is held annually by ASB with the goal of promoting kindness and inclusion in the CdM community; held on March 4-8th, this year’s theme was “be the change.” This simple statement encompasses the integrity and morals of CdM as a school, and inclusion week was the perfect time to promote this. The week included a King’s Krew wall filled with posters, promotion videos on Trident TV, positive notes passed out in classes, and of course, the inclusion carnival.

Inclusion week finishes strong each year with an inclusion carnival, and a lot of planning and organizing goes into hosting an event like this event on ASB’s part. This year, many students, including junior Alex Milisavljevic, worked hard to pull it off and were understandably proud of the results. “The carnival was great! We ha[d] out churros, otter pops, chips, and cookies to anyone who came, set out games like cornhole, and had kids sign their names on paper hands which we will hang up next week,” Milisavljevic exclaims. This effort did not go unnoticed by the students who stopped by to enjoy, such as junior Calvin Song, who felt that the carnival was “a fun surprise to see after walking out of class,” and “brightened up his day.”

Inclusion week is beneficial to not only the students who enjoyed the events, but also the students who helped set it up. The campus as a whole appreciated the fun events, as well as the message behind them. As explained by Milisavljevic, “inclusion week is meant to be a week on campus where students can take time to be mindful of their importance and role on campus in fostering and maintaining a close-knit and supportive community.”

Summed up by Milisavljevic, “this week is such a valued event to ASB because it truly reflects our goals as a student body. We are forcing ourselves to take a moment to recognize our importance and impact on campus, and truly come together as a community.”
