Schools Host Anti-Bullying Trainings for Parents

e-Connections Post Genevieve F. Didion Martin Luther King, Jr. Sutterville

Genevieve Didion K-8, Martin Luther King Jr. K-8 and Sutterville Elementary School all hosted bullying prevention trainings for parents recently. Sutterville’s training coincided with the final celebration of the Parents as Partners program. When the parents heard that increased supervision during unstructured times like recess, bathroom breaks and in the lunchroom could reduce the probability of bullying incidences occurring on campus, the parents pledged to help, which demonstrates the power of the Parents as Partners program and how parents can mobilize to support their child’s school once trained and engaged to do so.
