Bully Shmully

Friday, our early release assembly addressed bullying.  "Bully Shmully" was a program offered by Academic Entertainment that focused on the types of bullying, how to prevent and address a bullying issue.  Eric Herman used humor and music to help kids feel empowered.  Edy Ridge is a very positive place for kids.  Since we opened in 2009, our PBS program has rewarded and addressed behavior.  At the same time, our students are vulnerable to social pressures in school and out of school.  Bullying has been going on for generations, and, as you know, access to technology has intensified the issues for today's children.  We want to do our best to equip students to address bullying episodes positively, safely, and responsibly.  Eric's presentation will be linked to Jamie Sheppard's anti-bullying lessons and activities contained within her Guidance curriculum in her Counseling program.
