  • This year’s theme “LEAN On Me; Stop the Bullying!” focuses on the culture of the school and the interdependence of students and staff to make theirschool safe, warm and welcoming.
  • Within this overall culture students will be encouraged to support each other, connect with the staff and be diligent as they watch out for others in need.
  • Fundamental to the “LEAN On Me” concept is straight from the song lyrics, “sometimes in our lives we all have pain and we all have sorrow” learning to depend on fellow classmates, trust the adults at school and to treat others well. This “culture of kindness” will support the subtitle of “STOP the Bullying” by getting to the root of the problem before episodes escalate.
