Be a positive charge! Across our district we have teachers and staff, programs and initiatives promoting the importance of being a positive force in school, in the community. Today and every day, we encourage students to ACT! Speak up, stand up when bullying occurs, engage in learning, try a new activity, clean up trash, do something kind, make a new friend. Take a moment to read more about how you and your student can contribute to a positive climate in our schools!Power Up at School: Our schools have many programs and activities promoting positive change! Ask your student about those available in their school and find out how your family can get involved! [For example: Green Dot and Wessler training in our high schools, S.P.A.R.K. at CHS, Kindness Campaign at Lakes Magnet, Olweus Antibullying curriculum in our middle school, Buddy Benches at all elementary schools.]
