This weekend was homecoming for my two high school boys. (My younger son in white tie, pictured above with his buddies). It was a great weekend. Although their groups of friends are very nice kids, it was brought to my attention there was an issue with a few girls not being nice or inclusive to another girl surrounding homecoming weekend. Even though I do not have a daughter, it was very upsetting to me as I feel this is a type of “bullying” that happens all too often. There have been so many stories in the news of heartbreaking “bullying situations”. We as parents and teachers need to take action… even if the bullying is excluding someone from homecoming groups… bullying starts somewhere, and it’s up to all of us to stop it.
We know teachers help spread awareness, kindness and love every day. For that we say THANK YOU and keep up the good work! Our children are our future; let’s help make it bright!
