‘We are 1’ event brings Wausau students together

WSAW.com: In the past 10 years, Wausau East has seen an increase in diversity among students, and because of those rising numbers, teachers brought back a togetherness program that they used four years ago to promote unity in the school.

The program is called, ‘We are 1,’ and last year’s Wausau East seniors were the last ones to experience it. That’s why teachers thought it was time to bring it back.

The idea is to promote tolerance, and togetherness throughout the school community and show kids that they’re more alike, then they are different.

Students filed into the cafeteria for lunch on Thursday and were greeted with quite the surprise, as music filled the room and sweet treats were handed out to promote the “We are 1,” message.

The school said they hadn’t seen any diversity issues recently, but getting the message of being kind to one another across is still an important task.

“This is every bodies school regardless of who your parents are, or where you live,” explained Wausau East teacher Christy Powell.
