Its been another amazing week here at KES! Today was especially wonderful celebrating our 1st Mr. Kaechele Day!
In school counseling news… Students are learning all about bully prevention in their school counseling lessons. I would like to share a powerpoint I created in 2014 for parents. This powerpoint helps explain the dynamics of bullying behavior and what to do. Your students really are learning to be helpful bystanders so that we can change all bullying behavior to buddy behavior. Parent Presentation1 Bullying 2
There is a beautiful poem in the book titled the Juice Box Bully by: Bob Sornson and Maria Dismondy. I would like to quote this poem as I feel this is how our students are relating to the idea of prevention.
I will speak up instead of acting as a bystander.
I Choose to participate in activities that don’t involve teasing.
I Forgive others if they make a poor choices.
I Model good behavior.
I Accept others for their differences.
I Include others in group situations.
I Will talk to an adult when there is a problem I cannot manage on my own.
I AM powerful in making a difference in my school.
