- Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week -
The Greater Essex County District County School Board is hoping for 100% participation in Kindness Campaigns during Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week – November 17-23.
A Kindness Campaign will be activities and/or initiatives that promote a safer and more welcoming learning environment. Schools are being encouraged to use this opportunity, as well, to inform their community about the different forms that bullying can take: Physical; Verbal; Social; and Electronic.
Research has shown that the effects and incidence of bullying can be significantly reduced by integrating kindness-based programs in schools.
