An ORANGE message from Mrs. Hecker, school counselor: Unity Day is Wednesday, October 24!

Unity Day, the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month, has been recognized in the United States since 2011. To participate in Unity Day, individuals, schools, communities, and businesses wear or display orange to show support for students who have been bullied.

We are wearing orange not to celebrate one day when we unite, but to symbolize that all year we are united!

It would be ideal to say that we are immune to bullying and although the incidents are low, they are a high priority for us. Every child needs to feel safe at school. It is why we spend an entire year on prevention. In our classroom guidance lessons, we teach skills such as empathy, compassion, assertiveness, emotional regulation and problem solving to name a few. These social skills are not only important in the prevention of bullying, but also in addressing the typical childhood conflicts. Children learn from prevention education as well as their own mistakes. We work with students in creating positive solutions to social conflict that will last with them as lifelong learners and know these lessons are just as valuable as our academics.

In addition to the comprehensive evidence based social skills curriculum, we use specific lessons to define bullying and our response to it. Your child is taught that bullying is repetitive, one-sided and using power in a hurtful way; which can include threatening, teasing, physical harm and social exclusion. Students learn and practice skills to recognize the bullying behavior, refuse the bullying behavior, show compassion to the child receiving the bullying behavior and reporting the bullying behavior. The power of the bystander is stressed in these lessons.

If you would like to learn more about our social skills curriculum, bullying prevention or have any questions please feel free to contact: erica.hecker@bexleyschools.org.

If you or your child witness bullying, harassment, or discrimination please contact us or use this link to make a report. https://bexleyschools.formstack.com/forms/incident_report
