Unity Day 2015

On October 21st,  we will be celebrating Unity Day!  Unity day is  part of the overall National Bullying Prevention Month Celebration.

National Bullying Prevention Month is a campaign in the United States founded in 2006 by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center. The campaign is held during the month of October and unites communities nationwide to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. Traditionally held the first week in October, the event was expanded in 2010 to include activities, education, and awareness building for the entire month. National Bullying Prevention Month is recognized in communities across the United States, with hundreds of schools and organizations signing on as partners.

Currently, we have the following activities planned:
1. Unity Day Pep Rally during middle school lunch.
2. Student Council will have an anti-bullying Unity Day Banner for students to sign their pledge to combat bullying.
3. Students and staff are encouraged to wear Orange in support of  the National Bullying Prevention Month and Unity Celebration.  (see attached flyer regarding Unity Day)

Please refer to the attached draft of the "Unity Day Pledge" teachers can use as part of your  discussions with students regarding bullying. Feel free to modify the pledge "draft" as you see fit.

Lastly, here are two excellent resources you can utilize to jumpstart the discussion with your students. There are several short 2-3 minute videos you can show them that features other students talking about bullying.

ST Math features a penguin that guides students through math concepts in a visual way. It doesn’t rely on language to teach math concepts the way a textbook does. “We don’t usually consider the extra cost in complexity of introducing students to math using language,” said Andrew Coulson, chief strategist at the MIND Research Institute, ST Math’s publisher. He said that introducing the concepts without the burden of language allows kids to grasp the ideas before learning the vocabulary and symbols that go along with them.
