A Reason To Be Proud...
On Friday, March 18, a group of Holicong students facilitated an event which truly coincided with the underlying foundation of Holicong’s Elite 8. At Holicong, we want all members of Holicong to be:
During morning announcements, students delivered the following message to all Holicong students through our closed circuit television system:
When our school comes to mind, we strive to demonstrate 8 traits. We strive to be honest, open-minded, loyal, inclusive, optimistic, non-judgmental, and genuine. However, are we always upholding these traits? We have forgotten that nowhere in these words does it state that being a bully represents how we should be acting. We must be honest with ourselves and make a change in the way we have been treating others. Nobody deserves to think they are not welcome in a school we all share as one. Be genuine to who you are and treat every individual the way you would want to be treated. Simple words can leave long lasting memories, good or bad. By calling someone an inappropriate name, you could affect the way they think about themselves. You can push them down to a point where they believe what you are saying. Try not to be the reason someone can’t even stand themselves anymore. The end of bullying can start with us. Small measures can make big differences when an entire school is on board. If we all take one minute every day to think before we speak, so many more people would be very happy. Remember that you are worth it, and you are beautiful.
This same group of students then placed 1,200 post it notes on all the lockers with an important message. The message reminded students that they are worth it and they are beautiful.
We are so proud of our students. The activity was a student-initiated activity to support the traits in the Holicong’s Elite 8.

A huge thank you to all the 7th grade parents who have previously submitted the form.
