As part of Memorial Middle School’s commitment to teaching students about the dangers of bullying, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students participated in activities to develop anti-bullying strategies. 

In their home base and physical education classes, students participated in activities to learn about promises, commitments, making pledges, refraining from bullying, standing up to bullies, and encouraging others with positive messages.

 
On Wednesday, Jan. 8, all students viewed a multi-media presentation about valuing others. Presented by Camfel Productions in conjunction with the Island Trees PTSA Cultural Arts Committee, students viewed a production on three screens that encouraged them to make a positive difference in the world around them. 

The assembly also challenged the students to make a commitment to building others up rather than tearing them down. As a culminating activity, students will sign “I Pledge” cards to be a part of the solution and to make a positive difference in the world.

"We thank our students, staff, and PTSA for helping to make this a very successful anti-bullying activity. We hope these lessons will last a lifetime," said Dr. Roger Bloom, Principal, Island Trees Memorial Middle School.

Songs can help young children learn about kindness and tolerance. The song “Be a Buddy, not a Bully” can be heard on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or7WPUtUnRo
