During the month of February we will be celebrating Black History Month. There will be several events throughout the month that will highlight the history of African-Americans. Bulletin boards will be dedicated to notable people in Black History. During the first week of February students will be reading high-interest articles on a historical event.
October is Bullying Prevention Month. It will kick off with the Don't Be a Bully Conference hosted by SDPD on October 1st. The character trait of the month will be Respect which will focus on Bullying. Bullying is an epidemic in our schools nationally with 1 out of 4 students reporting that they have been bullied (pacer.org). The numbers are likely much higher due to underreporting.
