St. Charles Elementary Students Pledge to Stop Bullying and Hang It Out to Dry!

November 18, 2015 - During Bullying Prevention and Awareness Week (November 16-20), students at St. Charles have been engaged many activities to raise awareness around the topic of bullying.

Students in all three FDK classes, with help from their teacher, Ms. Posso, have taken a pledge to stop bullying! They have read books and talked about what bullying means and together made this pledge:

I am a kid againstt bullying! And I will...

- Speak up when I see bullying
- Reach out to others who are bullied
- Be a friend whenever I see bullying.

Students in Grades 2-8 have each created a pink shirt with a message about bullying on them, and these shirts have been strung up down the halls to show they are "Hanging Bullying Out to Dry". On Wednesday November 18, there was a flourish of pink throughout the school as staff and students wore their pink shirts.

Other activities include a visit from Sergent Randy Hosken from the GSPS, a MADD presentation for students in grades 6-8 and students in grades 4-8 gave their input into our Safe School Survey called OurSchool (formerly Tell Them From Me). Also, Amanda Lantheir, a SCDSB child and youth worker continued to share with groups about the FRIENDS program and Kelso's Choices, and students learned Chris D'Souza's new song "I Want You to be Nice to Me".
