Every child can learn 
it is how they apply themselves 
 that makes the difference. 

 

 

 

 

 Please Be proactive and discuss this important issue with your child. Everyone deserves to come to school in a safe and friendly environment, and for some unfortunately that is not the case. 

 

          Bullying in schools has become a major issue all across America. It is up to us the teachers, students, and parents to take a stand to help keep our kids safe. If we don't then who will. Bullying is classified into 3 categories: The Bully, The Person being Bullied, and The Outsider (the person that just watches as it happens and does nothing about it.) If we don't take a stand, and step up then it will never end. Now with cyber-bullying the person being bullied often times won't even know who it is since the bully is hiding behind a screen. We need to help stop this major issue before it is to late, before it leads to someone harming them-self just to get away from the torment or them harming others.
  
Take a stand and join "Bullying STOPS with ME!" @ http://bullyingstopswithme.com/  a new program through KATC and The Family Tree. As well as the great site for parents on bullying located to the right. 
 
  STAND-UP BEFORE IT IS TO LATE.
It is NOT just kids being kids. It's much worse.
