    • True love for one another = no gossip

    • True love for one another = no picking

    • True love for one another = no name calling

    • True love for one another = no bullying


    We agree to do our part in preventing bullying at our school. We believe it is the equal right of everyone to enjoy CCS and to have the confidence that it is a place where all will feel safe, secure, and accepted regardless of color, race, gender, popularity, athletic ability, intelligence, religion, and nationality.

    Bullying can be pushing, shoving, hitting and spitting, as well as name calling, picking on, making fun of, laughing at, and excluding someone. Bullying causes pain and stress to victims and is never justified or excusable as “kids being kids,” “just teasing,” or any other rationalization. The victim is never responsible for being a target of bullying.

    • As a student, I pledge to:

    • Know and understand the CCS “No Bullying” Policy.

    • Show positive behavior and be sensitive to others.

    • Treat all students, teachers, and staff members with respect.

    • Not bully my peers or join in when others do.

    • Not participate in cyberbullying.

    • Talk with my parents about my feelings about school work, friendships, and classmates.

    • Tell my parents or teachers if any bullying has occurred.

    • STONE #2: choice.” ATTITUDE

    • “Kind words bring life but cruel words crush your spirit” (Prov 15:4)
