Miller Place Focuses On Anti-Bullying Lessons

Middle school students work together to create anti-bullying children's books.

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.

"In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, bloodshed - they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, 500 years of democracy and peace and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." Orson Welles in THE THIRD MAN

What is wrong with some of you people? - any and all measures to help eliminate cruelty, injustice, bullying, etc..etc. should always be welcome in any forum. As for the schools addressing it - bravo! - It's not like they spend the entire school day, everyday, just discussing this - the kids are learning their "abc's" too, so why make such silly comments to the contrary.

Our children's Brains Of Impressionable Mush, are being assaulted EVERY DAY, AND IN EVERY WAY, with Indoctrination, with various, and largely USELESS 'Information' by Public Employees who are supported with Tax Payer money ! Parents and their children don't have ANY chance, to discern useful information from the Propaganda.

Brookhavenconfucius, if you want to make valid points try using something better then works of fiction. I quote Dawin and you quote Orson Welles after I correct your use or misuse of a quote by Darwin. Pretty weak my friend. You need to rent a documentary called "I Am" by Tom Shadek. Not that that is the final word but it has very interesting insights. And to laurel... Don't let this Brookhavenconfucius guy get to you. His destiny is writen in stone. He or she will go down babbling like those types always do. The right answer is somewhere in the middle between you and those who fall into the category you title "what's wrong with some of you people". Hang in there everyone it's just human race growing pains... We are headed for greatness but along the way some pretty sick stuff will raise its head. Just never give up and keep steering the good course. We will get very near to heaven on earth.
