Bullying Prevention Week
As MSD Warren focuses on investing in meeting the needs of the whole child we recognize the need for additional curriculum and resources to support our students and staff. As an addition to the Second Step social emotional learning curriculum that all students K-8 participate in we have added the Second Step Bullying Prevention curriculum to support
citizenship and communication for students and adults alike.
The first lesson in this curriculum will be delivered by your student’s Core Connect teacher next week. Additional lessons will be taught throughout the rest of the school year. Here is what you can expect your student(s) and Warren Township employees to be embracing during this very important week of learning to better recognize, report and refuse
bullying and harassment.
● Recognize bullying and harassment
● Recognize verbal, relational, cyber, and physical bullying
● Recognize different types of harassment
● Report bullying and harassment to a caring adult
● Refuse to let bullying happen to themselves or others
● Be a upstander who stands up and is part of the solution to bullying and harassment.
During the school year as the bullying prevention lessons are taught your child will bring home simple, engaging activities through a Family Communication document. You may be familiar with these from other Second Step lessons. These activities give your child another chance to practice his or her skills for handling bullying. They will also help you understand
what your child is learning about bullying and how you can assist your child if he or she needs to respond to bullying.
For bullying prevention to work, everyone at school needs to be involved. All of our staff received training on.
● Recognizing and respond to bullying and harassment
● Supporting children who have been bullied or harassed
● Correcting behaviors of children who are bullying or harassing
● Using strategies that support a positive school and classroom climate
We need your help too! Make sure your child knows to tell you or someone at school if he or she is being bullied, or if he or she knows about someone else being bullied. Give your child the clear message that it is never okay to bully others.
For more information on our schools’ anti-bullying policy please refer to the Student Success Handbook which can be found under the Explore then Parent section of our website. You can report bullying directly to the child’s school or call the bullying hotline and report to 317-532-3049.
Thank you for helping us keep our school safe and a respectful place where everyone
Culturally Responsive Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (CR-PBIS)
Welcome to Culturally Responsive Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (CR-PBIS) at Stonybrook Intermediate & Middle School. Your students have started the Second Step program in their CORE Connects over the past couple weeks. This is our social emotional learning curriculum here at Stonybrook. Topics such as listening, empathy, calming down, and managing emotions will be discussed this year.
This week students will also be talking about Bullying Prevention and Awareness in their CORE Connect Class. Students will be taking a pledge to anti-bully after the presentation.
Joke of the Week: Q: Why did closing her eyes remind the teacher of her classroom?

Athletic Event Safety
We are excited to be able to offer our students opportunities to safely participate in athletics during the current Covid -19 pandemic. In order to keep you, your family, our staff, and your student athletes safe, we are only admitting 250 total spectators into Stonybrook events to comply with MCPHD and IHSAA social distancing guidelines. Spectators for all sports will be limited to immediate family members.
- Home Football and Volleyball: Tickets will go on sale on site 45 minutes before the start time of the event and will be available on a first come first serve basis. Tickets will be $5 general admission, $3 for children ages 5 and up, and $13 for a family pass which includes two adults and two children.
- Employees planning to attend games will be granted entrance for just the badge holder.
- Away game/match ticketing and safety information will be determined by the opposing school. Ticketing and safety information for away games/matches will be provided to coaches for distribution as soon as it is available to ADs. Plan on masks being required.
Game Day at Stonybrook
- Masks are REQUIRED for admission and must remain on while at an event. Any spectator not wearing a mask will be denied entry or asked to leave.
- Family units may sit together but must be using 6 feet of social distancing between another family unit.
- Avoid congregating near concessions or bathrooms when applicable.
- Home Fans are encouraged to arrive 45-60 minutes prior to start time, while away fans are encouraged to arrive 20-40 minutes prior to start time. This will help alleviate crowding at the door/gate.

MCPHD, IHSAA, and NFHS**
I'd like to share some parent resources for Canvas. There is a Canvas app for parents that will allow you to communicate with your children's teachers and access your student's instructional material. Click on this link to watch the video.
