Weekly Update from Andy
Hi everyone, I want to send out a reminder that October is Bullying Awareness Month and that the first full week of October has been designated as "Anti-Bullying Awareness Week" in Kansas.
I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to connect with your students and share meaningful, relevant activities related to bullying so that we can help eliminate this destructive process in our schools. Click on these recommended resources to look over and utilize as you engage students, parents and patrons.
Thanks for all you do and have a great week! Andy
