Bullying prevention work continues

e-Connections Post

National Bullying Prevention Month may have ended, but SCUSD’s work to make schools safer and healthier places for students to learn continues.

October saw a flurry of activities, from an anti-bullying rally at the Capitol to staff and parent training workshops at schools. As part of Ethel Phillips Elementary’s anti-bullying efforts, students created a unity chain that reached around the entire cafeteria.

Bullying Prevention Specialist Jessica Wharton also was a panelist at the second annual BRAVE Society “See Something, Say Something” conference.

McGeorge School of Law provided two legal cyber-bullying workshops to ninth-grade students at Rosemont High School, and, since then, Will C. Wood has scheduled the same training for its seventh graders.

Any organization interested in being trained by Ms. Wharton may contact her at jessica-wharton@scusd.edu.
