Oct 2 - Bullying is Trash! During lunch, students will examine their bullying behaviors. They will take one strip of newspaper for each bullying behavior they have committed (see attached, will be printed and enlarged for student viewing). Students will gain insight into and accountability for their behaviors and then throw those behaviors in the trash (have a can set up wrapped in bright orange paper with no bullying sign). Last year, many students commented on the therapeutic value of ripping up the behavior strips and burying them. This activity should produce a similar result.
Oct 9 - Cultivating Kindness. Students will be asked to write kind statements on pre-cut "positivity petals." Their statements will be displayed as "friendship flowers" on the bulletin board outside of the cafeteria.
Oct 16 - Pledge & Wristband. Students will sign an anti bullying pledge and receive a "Eagles Rise Above Bullying" wristband.
Oct 23 - Unity Day. Students will wear orange to show support for acceptance and inclusion
