Claxton Kicks-off Olweus Bullying Prevention Program

This year Claxton is implementing the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program to ensure a safe school environment for all Claxton Students.  

Ms. Carter presented the program at the Ice Cream Social last week, and students were introduced to the program with skits to help them understand how power factors into bullying and how different behaviors give or take power from a bully.  Classes also teamed up with buddies from another grade for activities that will help younger kids know that they can rely on their older peers when  if they are seeing or experiencing behaviors that make them uncomfortable.

If you missed the program, please take a few minutes to review the links above, and discuss the skits and buddy activities with your child.  There will be weekly action to support the adoption of this program through out the year.  

Claxton's Anti-Bullying Rules:
Rule1: I will not bully others. 
Rule 2: We will try to help others who are bullied.
Rule 3: We will try to include students who are left out. 
Rule 4: If we know someone is being bullied, we will tell and adult at school or at home.
