Dear EVCS Students,
Our core value is Kindness.
Kind people show concern for others, for our school and for the environment. Kindness can be demonstrated through compassion, empathy, generosity, and service. Kindness is one of the greatest qualities a person can have, and it is necessary to have kindness in a community.
While we all work on becoming kinder people here at school, it’s important that everyone in our school community understand our policy on bullying. Bullying is very serious and we can never let it happen here at EVCS. I’ve asked five very important people to come up and help me deliver this message. Natasha, Selena, Tess, Megan, Liz and I are all on our school’s Bullying Prevention Committee.
Here is how we define bullying at our school:
Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself.
We have four special school rules just for bullying:
–We will not bully others.
–We will try to help students who are bullied.
–We will try to include students who are left out.
–If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.
You will all be exploring the different roles in bullying situations, and thinking of ways we can all be upstanders this week in your classrooms.
Thanks so much to the 2nd Graders for sharing their work this morning! Thanks to the SWMM house band! Thanks to our parents for joining us this morning, and thanks everyone for signing loud and proud. Have a great day.
