Resources for Families regarding Bullying and Cyberbullying

The National Institutes of Health recognizes bullying as a significant public health problem. In the social media era, harassment and intimidation take place both offline and on, which amplifies the severity of aggression and stress in children and their parents. Children’s Hospital has made available this 15 minute “Just Kids Health” episode on Bullying & Cyberbullying to help parents understand bullying behaviors and how to address signs of bullying and prevent it. To best support our students, Westside is pleased to provide system-wide, bullying prevention programming to tackle bullying behavior.

PBiS at Hillside and the Skill of the Week

PBiS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Support. This is our school wide (and district wide) method for supporting student positive behavior and success at school. Each week, we introduce or review a behavior skill for that week. This helps students to continue to grow their behavior skills each week.


Hillside emphasizes the "3-Be's"

BE SAFE

BE RESPECTFUL

BE RESPONSIBLE


We want all students to know how to be safe, respectful, and responsible, not only while at school, but in their life!



The Skill of the Week for 1/16 - 1/20/23 is:


Greeting Others

When you greet others, you:


  • Look at the person
  • Use a pleasant voice
  • Say, "Hi" or "Hello"

We will be working on the above skill all week!
