Throughout the upcoming week, November 14th through the 18th, our school will be participating in Bully Awareness Week. This years theme is “Stand Up!“. Together our students and staff will be standing up to bullying, working to prevent it from occuring! Each day will have a different dress up opporunity and activities designed to educate our students on the various types of bullying, how to prevent it, and how to be an advocate for a peer who is being bullied. The schedule for next week is as follows:
Monday – Bully Awareness Week Kick-Off Day
To show that we are going to stomp out bullying, students may wear any shoes and socks of their choice.
Tuesday – Bullying is a Community Issue Day
To show we black out bullying, students may wear a black shirt with their uniform bottoms.
Wednesday – Stop Cyberbullying Day
To show that bullying of any kind is wack, students may wear wacky hair. We will be encouraging our students to post on social media in honor of Bully Awareness Week; feel free to tag our Instagram page, @stangelacougars, so we can share their image!
Thursday – Be the Change: Youth Leadership and Action Day
To show being a friend is no sweat, students may wear their uniform shirt with sweats.
Friday – Blue Friday
Blue is the nationally recognized color of Bullying Awareness, so on Friday students may wear a blue shirt with their uniform bottoms as a sign of peace and safety at our school.
Additionally, the Caught You Caring Campaign will be running during the entire week. Student Council, teachers, staff, and administration will randomly catch students committing acts of caring and kindness towards others and they will be given a voucher. The students will take this voucher to the office where they will drop it into the Caring Kids box. Three names will be drawn from the box to win a prize on Friday!
