South School to participate in worldwide bullying prevention day
Rockland — The South School in Rockland will participate in Blue Shirt Day, a World Day of Bullying Prevention Monday, Oct. 7 and wants the community to join in.
The students will wear the color blue to mark Blue Shirt Day and will engage in activities designed to promote kindness and steer the students toward a more positive way of being together.
Along with spending the day practicing giving compliments and practicing random acts of kindness, South School parents, teachers and friends have arranged for author Katherine Mayfield to speak in the afternoon to the students and a parent-oriented presentation in the multi-purpose room will be held at 5 p.m.
Mayfield’s book, "Bullied: Why You Feel Bad Inside and What to Do About It," is a guide to emotional intelligence and recovery for teens and adults who have been bullied or abused, and aims to save the lives of teens who have been bullied and reduce the incidence of bullying by teaching readers how to manage emotions.
The presentation is free and open to the Regional School Unit 13 community.
