We ask our students and staff to make a pledge to step up against bullying. This year we are focusing on what “ingredients” are needed to be someone of Good Character. What does that mean to you?
Have your family brainstorm some ideas about this, too!
We continue to talk about what bullying is and some of the strategies to guide us when we need to make a stand. Here is the main point that we want everyone to know and understand: A student is being bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly, and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more students. Bullying implies an imbalance in power and strength. The student who is bullied has difficulty defending himself/herself. Have you heard about our Step-Up Thursday? It is the first Thursday of the month and the day for all of us here at DE to wear our navy blue Step-Up shirts.
Thanks to the students, staff, and parents for “Cooking Up Good Character” this year.
