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
Hillside emphasizes the "3-Be's"
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 1/9 - 1/13/23 is:
Working with Others
When you work well with others, you:
- Identify the task to be completed
- Assign tasks to each person
- Discuss ideas in a calm, quiet voice and let everyone share ideas
- Work on tasks to be completed
We will be working on the above skill all week!
