We Are Stronger Together

Definition of Bullying:

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

Cardinal Unity Day

Do The Right Thing!

Notice a kiddo who does the right thing when no one is looking? Then nominate them today for Do The Right Thing! DTRT is a district-wide initiative that recognizes students who "do the right thing" in difficult situations.

If you notice a student "doing the right thing" and want to nominate them, email me and I will place a form in your box. If they win, they and a guest will be treated to a special luncheon at The Firestone Grill.

Nominations for October are Due by October 21st.

Introducing our Cardinal Upstander Awards

Cardinal Upstander Award:

This award will go to students who exemplify Upstander qualities during a situation involving bullying or potential bullying:

-Don't give bullying an audience

-Be their friend

-Help them get away

-Set a good example

-Tell a trusted adult

By doing these things, students will help others to Stand Up & Speak Out against bullying of all types, therefore making them upstanders instead of bystanders.

Please email me names of kiddos you believe have stood up and spoken out against bullying throughout the year.
