Bullying Prevention and Awareness continues at Essex PS. We focus on inclusion and kindness with an overall theme of WE ALL BELONG! Staff and students continually engage in a variety of lessons and activities to help identify bullying situations, learn strategies to help, and ways we can prevent bullying from happening in the future. Mrs. St. Germain had the pleasure of engaging in the OLWEUS bullying circle activity with several classes to teach the various roles in a bullying situation and how to shift our attitudes and thinking to support those in need and spread kindness all around. EPS staff and students continue to engage in conversations about how daily positive interactions contribute to making our community a happy and inclusive school, where everyone belongs. Help us spread positivity by engaging in conversations with your children about how to incorporate kindness daily!
