LEAN On Me; STOP the Bullying
Every school’s campaign be different to fit their needs
Emphasis will be placed on the “Lean On Me” concept and connectivity throughout the school
Everyone in the school needs support one time or another and being there for others is a significant way to create a healthy school climate.
Some schools will use the Daily School Announcements on the PA system or Closed Circuit TV
Song lyrics are available to “Lean OnMe” for schools who want “flash mob” or use them for discussion or writing prompts.
Some schools are having “Lean On Me; STOP the Bullying” days with the students wearing RED, their school logo for spirit, or school colors (indicating I’m here for you).
Many are displaying their pledge certificates in rooms on walls in halls
Numerous websites for teachers, students, counselors, SROs, Family Resource Centers or others to use to teach about bullying, cyberbullying, connectivity and more…
