October is Anti-Bullying Month.
We are going to kick off a recognition program for October where 6th, 7th and 8th graders are recognized for positive behaviors such as team spirit, individuality, teamwork, bully prevention, acts of kindness, positive self image, friendship, calling out bully behavior and more.
Each week, teachers will be on the lookout and nominate kids from each of the 3 grade levels. Names will go into a hat and a drawing will be held weekly where winners from each grade will be selected. Many local area food businesses generously donated to support Blendon Middle School and this anti-bullying program. Gift cards will be presented to the winners in a Blendon Pride Pack.
What can you do to make a difference at school, at home, in your life and the lives of others. How can you be a part of the solution. Each week, there will be a thought of the week. Let's pull together and be the best people we can be. Live united, not divided.
Thought of the week # 3
Set goals for yourself: Where do you see yourself currently and where do you want to be? How do you achieve those goals? Can others help you to achieve them? Solve problems together. Teamwork makes the dream work.
