Our School Counselor, Ms. Lutz, has been visiting classrooms, teaching the definition of bullying and how to be part of the 'Caring Majority' of Upstanders.
What is bullying? Bullying is intentional harmful behavior by one or more that is directed towards a specific victim. Bullying exists when a student deliberately dominates and harasses another student who is perceived to have less power. Bullying is repeated and intentional.
What is the 'Caring Majority'? The Caring Majority is a group of kids that care enough to stand up and support those who are being bullied. These students are called UPSTANDERS. No longer can we stand by and let others be bullied. They use their words and presence to support students that are unable to speak up for themselves.
If you have any questions regarding bullying at Pine Trail Elementary, please call Ms. Lutz at 386-258-4672
