Make It Yours!
 

Scholars and Parents,

Please make sure to label all items that you bring to school, particularly uniform items that are not personalized. There are a number of items in the lost and found that have not been claimed because it is not possible to determine the owner. Lunch bags, jackets, notebooks, pencil cases, etc. should all have the scholar's name and college written in permanent ink or marker somewhere on the item. Laundry markers and Sharpies work great on clothing and outerwear.

Thanks for your help.

October is Bullying Prevention Month
 

The month of October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Throughout the month, students will be learning more about bullying. I encourage you to talk to your student about bullying. It is important to know exactly what bullying is. The definition of bullying provided by stopbullying.gov is; "Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems." It is important to be aware of the definition of bullying. Bullying can have lasting negative effects and is a serious issue. Remember for behavior to be defined as bullying it must be aggressive, have an imbalance of power and be repetitive.

Stay tuned next week to learn tips on how to talk to your student about bullying.
