‘Bully Free Week’ at Solana Highlands

Solana Highlands Elementary School recently held an educational week to help prevent bullying.

Solana Highlands Elementary School held a “Bully Free Week” Nov. 12-16. While most experts consider bullying an issue that largely begins in 4th grade, the school wants to be sure that it proactively teaches about this behavior so that bullying does not occur either now or in the future. Students were taught: The definition of bullying; the difference between conflict and bullying; what each of us can say and do to prevent bullying and the role bystanders play; and the difference between “Tattling and Telling.” At the conclusion of the presentation, the student council acted out the story “One” by Kathryn Otoshi.

After seeing their grade’s presentation each student was asked to take the following pledge:

“I promise that I will do my best to show good character and keep our school a safe and caring place. This means that I will:

1. Treat everyone with kindness and respect.

2. Refuse to bully others.

3. Refuse to let others be bullied.

4. Refuse to watch, laugh, or join in when someone is being bullied.

5. Try to include everyone in play, especially those who are often left out.

6. Report bullying to an adult.”
