East Clinton students from preschool to 12th grade participated in the national day of awareness Wednesday by pledging to “Spread the Word to End the Word.”

This campaign is an effort that to end the use of the word “retard” or “retarded.”

The first Wednesday in March every year is dedicated to making a pledge to use kind language. Students of all ages pledged to respect others despite their differences.

Many staff members were seen sporting the “Spread the Word” t-shirts that read “more alike than different.” This is a reminder that all people deserve respect.
