Girls on the Run Spring Practice 5K

Letter to Parents/Guardians...
This week’s lessons are gossip and recognizing bullying behavior. In Lesson 13, the girls learn about the hurtful consequences of gossiping. We discuss how gossiping hurts both the person about whom the gossip is being spread and the person spreading it.
In Lesson 14, the girl’s explore different ways bullying can occur—physical, verbal and emotional. We also discuss tactics to use when being bullied or witnessing someone else being bullied. We encourage the “SBLR Strategy” from last week’s lesson as an effective way to respond to bullying. Next week we will focus on friendship and practicing our 5K!
