27 NO SCHOOL - Memorial Day
Q & A Bullying: The bystander’s role Q: My child came home from school upset because kids were picking on a classmate and wouldn’t let her play with them. What advice should I give my child?
A: Tell your youngster that her classmate was being bullied – and that she has the power to help stop it!
There are several things she can do. She could start by standing up to the bully and saying something like, “That’s not nice.” Then, she might ask the child who is being bullied to join her in a game or school project.
Also, remind your youngster to report bullying to a teacher or other adult when she sees it. Let her know this is not tattling, but a way to help someone who is being hurt. You can explain: “Asking an adult to help a child who is being bullied is like asking the nurse to help a child with a scraped knee.” Home & School Connection

Students share responsibility for academic achievement
The best formula for academic success is straight-forward: Students need to go to class, pay attention, and study hard. Our children must understand they are not passive partners in their own education, but the most important players.
When you’re angry:
Recognize what makes you angry.
Empathize with the other person’s feelings.
Think of positive things about the situation.
Hear what the other person is saying to you.
Include “I” messages to tell how you feel.
Notice what happens to your body.
Keep your attention on the present situation.
8 Ways to Respect Yourself
1. Set positive goals and strive to achieve them.
2. Stand up for yourself and what you believe in.
3. Have confidence in your abilities.
4. Be honest with yourself and others.
5. Choose friends who make healthy choices and share your dream of a bright future.
6. Use good judgment and make wise decisions. Think about the consequences of your actions.
7. Take care of your body and your mind so you can be your best. Stay drug free!
8. Be proud of your decision to say “NO!” to drugs.
