Olweus Bully Prevention Kick-Off

On Wednesday, November 2nd, our student committee planned and facilitated several activities to promote our Olweus bully prevention program. Students reviewed how to report bullying situations through Sprigeo, discussed cyber bullying, and listened to our teachers share bullying experiences from their pasts. This was a great review for our students.
