South Mountain School

  • Daily announcements announcing the day and week of respect
  • Wear daily outfits to remind of Week of Respect
  • Unify the school community
  • All of us together make our school and community a better place
  • Signs in bathrooms on being respectful and kind.
  • Each classroom does a lesson or activity as part of the Starts with Hello.  Starts with Hello came out of the Sandy Hook Promise (https://www.sandyhookpromise.org) to help students not feel isolated and part of a community - research shows that greeting someone by name goes a LONG way.  As a classroom teacher, you can choose to do this everyday next week or as a kick off as something to do everyday. Here are some ideas:
  • Have a student stand at the door and greet every child by name as they walk in. (You can have a different child every day for the Week of Respect or kick it off and make it part of a class job like Line leader)
  • Do a lesson on how to give a greeting (look someone in the eye, speak clearly, etc)
  • Do a lesson(s) on including others, what to do if you see someone who isn’t playing with someone - tell them to go up and just start with hello!

Millburn Middle School

 

THEME= Respect:  What’s your Superpower?

Stand Up to Bullying is an initiative to help students, parents and educators to create school climates full of safe and supportive peer relationships. Research shows that one of the most effective ways to prevent bullying behavior is to create a positive school climate. School climate encompasses everything that contributes to a student's experience with a school—from the physical building to policies, staff and peer culture. Positive school climates exist in schools where students, families and educators all work collaboratively to build a culture of respect.

Our theme of Respect- What’s Your Superpower? delivers a message that we should not be bystanders in this discussion but active participants ready to make and recognize respectful connections between us all.  

 

Ongoing Projects Throughout the Week--

 

What’s Your Superpower- Board! - reflecting our school ideals- teachers/staff/students will add “superpower handouts” before and after school to the bulletin board outside the auditorium.  Peer leaders will stand by the wall to “assist” in the writing to make sure respect/diversity is the key focus of each entry. (Details on board for students)
