Myers has a long tradition of anti-bullying initiatives!
Everyday our school-wide expectations are taught to every student...these expectations stress being our best and treating others the way we want to be treated! Our Muncy TRIBE is...
Through the guidance program each school year, kindergarten through sixth grade students are presented with classroom lessons based on anti-bully themes of empathy, respect, conflict resolution and self-control. Students are taught the definition of bullying and the roles of bystander, target, and bully.
Students in every grade level are taught a 3-step problem-solving model to help them respond to problems they might encounter with their classmates:
STOP- ask the person to stop what they are doing
WALK- walk away or ignore the behavior
TALK-if the problem persists or danger exists, go to a grown-up for help
*If your child is experiencing a bullying situation as defined below, don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher, myself, or the school principal.
Bullying- intentional written, verbal or physical act, or a series of acts directed at another student or students which occurs in a school setting that is severe, persistent or pervasive and that has the effect of substantially interfering with a student's education, creating a threatening environment and/or substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.
