SJA School Anti-Bullying Awareness Week
St. Joan of Arc is committed to Bullying Prevention and Awareness. Every day since the first week of school, students recite the Anti-Bullying Pledge. This week, students participated in various activities throughout the week to reinforce the message. On Monday, students signed the Anti-Bullying Pledge outside the front office. Tuesday was Random Acts of Kindness Day. For lunch on Wednesday, students sat with someone new at Mix It Up Day at lunch. Students were separated by birth month and did a (D)Ice Breaker activity. Every number on the dice corresponded with a different question. On Thursday, students showed their commitment to not bully others by wearing blue. Finally, Friday was Unity Day and the Pep Rally. Students showed off their school pride by wearing their green and gold. During the week, kindness and bullying lessons were taught in the classes. Students in early education were visited by middle school students who read, “One” by Kathryn Otoshi, a book about the power of “one” when it comes to bullies.
