Students Make Anti-Bullying Commitment at Pearson 6th Grade Center

The Shakopee school has a number of other anti-bullying initiatives.

Students at Pearson Sixth Grade Center took to the street last weekend in a Walk to End Bullying. The student-inspired event had a three-fold purpose, according to Principal Dave Orlowsky:

  • We hope that students will see that bullying is not acceptable to anyone as they walk publically to make that statement. 
  • Students will have their voice heard as they walk to end bullying.
  • Students will see there is lots of support for those that may be experiencing bullying.

Pearson has a number of other anti-bullying initiatives. In the first quarter of the year, social studies teachers went through an anti-bullying curriculum called “Steps to Respect” with their students, said Orlowsky in an email to Patch. Also, during students’ advisory class period, they discuss messages related to such topics as community, kindness and character, Orlowsky said.

In November, students will participate in Courage Retreat, led by a group called Youth Frontiers. Students will have the opportunity to play games, take part in discussions, and learn about peer pressure, among other topics. Youth Frontiers is an organization dedicated to fostering school environments that are safe and positive, according to information on its website.

Pearson’s Walk to End Bullying took place on Sat., Oct. 27. The event was open only to Pearson staff, students, and families.

Oh that is so beautiful, walk to end bullying, courage retreat... sniff... sniff, and hold-on... steps to respect... sniff... sniff. Is this the kind of crap we are spending Education money on. How about this, you let the parents teach the kids to have a little respect for themselves, and let the Teachers teach Math, Reading, Writing, History, Music, eg... Why are people shocked that Americans can't compete Academically, when we spend money on programs like this. Question: What country spends the most money on education? I am pretty sure it is the USA. Yes I do believe that NOT everyone is a winner. I do believe you need to lose in life sometimes to build Character. Get a Helmet People!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
