Anti Bullying Efforts

Anti-bullying is about everyone taking time to understand and respect each other's experiences and beliefs. This takes everyone working together, so anti-bullying is also about people standing up against bullying when they see it happening.

Sense of Community

It’s important to feel comfortable in social activities and when building relationships with peers and adults. Whether at home, at school, at work or in the community, students should feel like people around them accept them.

Social Skills Development

Adults need to help students develop social skills like listening closely to learn about what others are sharing. Don’t forget, social skills include being able to work through conflicts and to negotiate with people.

Relationships With Peers And Adults Are Significant To Student Success

It is often said, “it’s not what you know but WHO you know”. Knowing how to develop and maintain healthy relationships is a life-long skill that will have a lasting impact on future success and happiness. Helping students plan and prepare for these relationships is key to their future success.
