Bullying and Harrassment

Being Proactive About Bullying
Here at Middletown Primary, we strive to cultivate positive relationships and nurture an environment where every child can have a great place to come and learn.  Our first responsibility as educators is to teach children both academically and socially.  I go into every classroom during the school year to teach a lesson about bullying and harassment.  In this proactive approach, I teach kids that bullying:

  • is intentional verbal, written, or physical behavior
  • has unequal power between the bully and the target
  • makes the student being bullied feel bad
  • can take the form of physical, verbal, emotional exclusion, or cyberbullying
