October is National Bullying Awareness Month!


October is National Bullying Awareness Month! Mrs. Hoffman and I have begun a series of bullying lessons with the students, teaching them to recognize, refuse, and report bullying. It is so important for everyone to be able to recognize and understand what bullying really is. Bullying is when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose. It is repeated, unfair, and one-sided and the person it's happening to hasn't been able to make it stop. Parents and guardians play a key role in preventing and responding to bullying. If you suspect your child has been involved in bullying as either a victim, bully, or bystander, have a conversation with them to learn more of what's been going on. Stay calm, listen without judgement, and provide a safe atmosphere for them to talk. Feel free to reach out to us here at school for guidance on how to handle the situation, especially if it is occurring at school. If you know or suspect that your child is involved in bullying, visit stopbullying.gov for more helpful information. Mrs. Hoffman and I also have a link to a virtual library with books all about bullying, emotions, friendship, and social skills. You can also access resources on the parent tab of Mrs. Hoffman's website: www.mindfulschoolcounseling.com.
