Kindness Week Nov 19-23

Bully Prevention Week Nov. 19-23
The SMCDSB theme for Bullying Prevention Week 2018 is Called to BE Kind: Our Kindness Story with a focus on developing kind practices in all areas of our lives. 

Staff are encouraged to help students use this year’s theme to demonstrate kindness across all areas of their lives with a specific focus on leaving a positive footprint in the following areas: Faith, Family, School, Online and in their Communities.

This year’s theme is meant to help students to be self-reflective and encourage the importance of developing kind practices in their daily lives. We are challenging students to share their stories of love and kindness wherever they go. 

Research has demonstrated a reliable association between a positive school climate (warm relationships and consistently applied high standards for behaviour) and low levels of bullying and aggression.
