Anti-Bullying Awareness Week

During the week of October 2-6, we will take the opportunity to create awareness and address the harm that bullying creates for students. You may wonder if your child is being bullied at school.  Below is some information:

When someone does something unintentionally hurtful, and they do it once, that's rude. When someone does something intentionally hurtful, and they do it once, that's mean. When someone does something intentionally hurtful and they keep doing it, even after they are asked to stop - that's Bullying. The most common signs that your child is being bullied are excuses and faking an illness to get out of school, loss of appetite, failing grades, and avoiding social activities.  The best way for parents to respond to bullying is to support and report. Support your children by having open lines of communication, avoiding blame, listening to their story, and empowering them. A very important key is to report to the school if you feel that your child is being bullied. See for more information.

We will create awareness this week by having special dress up days each day.

This year students will have the opportunity to sample different fruits and vegetables on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  The goal of this program is to expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption and make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health.  Please take some time to discuss with your child their favorite one so far.
