Our fabulous PTA funded a bullying assembly last Friday that supports our curriculum around teaching our students how to identify and respond to bullying behavior: Defining bullying as repeated, onesided, and intentional behavior that threatens, frightens or excludes others over time. Responding with the 3 R’s: Recognize, Refuse, and Report! The importance of being an ALLY to friends who are treated with unkind words or actions was a nice addition this year!
Thanks again to our parent community that contribute to our school in so many ways! The partnerships we develop strengthen our school!
