Bullying "hotspots" are places where bullying often occurs. During our March class meetings, we have been discussing these locations and providing strategies on how to reduce bullying by empowering Scripps students.
Some students experience teasing, exclusion, and bullying due to perceived differences. Our April lessons focus on respecting and appreciating our differences, stopping prejudices, and the benefits of living in a diverse community.
As always, it is our hope that the Olweus program generates a clear and consistent message and that it continues to be a part of everyday life at Scripps Middle School.
