HEY DUDE, NICE SHOES - Coming to LVISD

Specific Times TBD for November 8 at LVMS!


"I am a fervent advocate of Public Schools and have been volunteering and serving the public school system in the state of Texas for the past 15 years. I have done everything from substitute teach, to be a RIF volunteer, to mentoring students to answering phones in the office. In short, I have made public schools my life's work. I started speaking to groups about parenting perspective about six years ago. A word kept bubbling up in our discussions...Bullying. I would hear it on the radio, read it in the headlines and see it on the news. Why is this suddenly such an epidemic and WHAT makes in different now? In the past two years I have developed an anti-bullying/ pro-kindness workshop for students and their parents. " Hey Dude, nice shoes" is a customizable presentation geared at educating students and their parents about the Who, what, when, where, whys and hows of Bullying. I have traveled all over the state delivering this message to thousands of students and their parents. Through this two part presentation my goal is to educate and inspire children and adults alike to -be the change- and make a positive difference in our world. I cover everything from basic definitions and policies to recent legislation pertaining to bullying in schools. Through personal stories...and some hilarious pictures I try to make one relatable point. We are all human. We all are fighting a battle that no one knows anything about and we all can take a moment to be kind."

PROJECT VINATTA

LVMS is proud to present Project Vinátta, our very first "No Place for Hate" student-led, anti-hate/anti-bullying coalition. It's called Project Vinátta, for that's the Viking word for friendship. Students participating in Project Vinátta will be conducting a variety of inclusive, anti-hate activities within the school and community throughout the year. Students had the opportunity to fill out an application to explain why they would be an asset to the group. The Project Vinátta Coalition will begin developing activities this week during Skolar time.


Any parents who might be interested in serving as the parent representative on our Project Vinátta Coalition, please refer to the application and video link below.
