Scotchtown students are
reminded to be a "Kid Against Bullying"
September 15, 2016
On September 8, Scotchtown Avenue School students participated in a
Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) assembly. Social worker Mary
Kay Jankowski and school psychologist Kerry Eschbacher shared videos and
pictures from Pacer Center’s Kids Against Bullying to relay the
“No Bullying” message. Students learned about different kinds of
bullying, age appropriate ways to stop bullying, why they should be kind
to one another and the importance of following school rules.
The students took a pledge at the end of the
presentation to be a “kid against bullying." They promised to Speak Up
when they see bullying, Reach Out to others who are bullied and Be A
Friend whenever they see bullying.
On October 19, Unity Day, SAS will be passing out No
Bullying stickers and will ask students to wear school colors to
continue to show Scottie Pride! Scotchtown is proud to start off the
year with such an important, positive message to all students.
Conversations about how students treat others as well
as how they should expect to be treated are ongoing throughout the year
at Scotchtown Avenue School.
