Anti-Bullying

 

As a school we are charged with the education and safety of the children of our community.  This is both a wonderful blessing and a terrible burden at times.  If we all think back we can remember just how difficult it was to be young, and to face the social scrutiny that high school had to offer us.  Unfortunately this has not changed and those in our charge face the same emotional battles every day that we did at that same age.

October is a time of solidarity and prevention against this timeless and cruel practice of the young adult population.  You will be presented with challenges throughout the month to aid in bringing awareness to our and our students actions that could be construed as bullying.  We must work to face this eternal battle and guide our students to overcome its influence.
