On October 15th we will celebrate our first whole school prayer service at the South Campus. I look forward to having our entire school body together in one place to truly represent how we are one school united in Christ Jesus. Following the prayer service, Jodee Blanco, national speaker and author of several books (Stop Laughing at Me) will be offering a workshop to the children on the effects of bullying on a child as well advice on what to do if you experience bullying or see someone else get bullied. The teachers will also receive training in how to recognize the signs of bullying and how to respond when a child reports bullying.
At 7:00 PM Jodee Blanco will complete her day long workshop with a presentation for parents at St. Mary Church. We hope many of our parents will attend so that together we all have the same understanding and language to use to address unkind behavior when it occurs.
I am grateful to Judy Meyer, parent of Lauren and Emily, who worked hard to get Jodee Blanco to come to our school. Judy held numerous fundraisers throughout the summer to raise funds to offset the cost. Many thanks to the teachers and families who worked at the various Pick N Save stores selling brats and hotdogs. Please thank Judy when you see her!
