Districts have taken a hard stance against bullying by teaching their students the proper way to handle a situation, communicate with one another, and know when to ask for help.
Home and Consumer Science teacher, Ms. Sommo, felt her eighth grade students at The North Country Road Middle School might be able to help younger kids understand what bullying is and how to prevent it. Sommo asked her students to work on their own children’s books with an anti-bullying theme. Together with partners, they created everything from the concept to the drawings.
The books were completed in November and shared with students from the Laddie A. Decker Sound Beach School.
"The North Country Road students enjoyed spending time with us here at LADSBS, they were eager to visit their former teachers, and did a fantastic job reading their books to the our students," said the district.
