I am worried about being bullied.
I abhor bullies. Bullies are usually coming from a place of feeling bad about themselves, so they act out on others to make themselves feel better, more powerful. But, in essence, bullies are weak.
With that being said, if you ever feel like you are being bullied, you MUST let me or another teacher know IMMEDIATELY. Whether, it's on the bus, at your locker, in the bathroom, at lunch, in class, in the hallway - wherever. If we don't know about it, we can't fix it. And, once we know about it, I can promise you that it will be addressed.
Letting someone know is not telling or tattling or ratting someone out, it is taking care of yourself and your friends, it is standing strong for yourself and your friends.
Whether it's happening to you or your friend, or you just witness it happening to someone you don't know, PLEASE let a teacher know.
You can email us, write us a note, have a parent/guardian send us a Talking Points msg or just tell us.
Remember, you deserve to come to a school where you feel comfortable, cared about and are able to do your work, without fear of something happening.
