CMS supports Anti-Bullying Day
On October 1 the faculty and staff at Chilhowee Middle School wore blue to support National Anti-Bullying Day. CMS is currently in the third year of the Olweus Anti-Bullying Program. The goal of the Olweus Anti-Bullying Program is to change the norms around bullying behavior and to restructure the school setting itself so that bullying is less likely to occur or be rewarded. All faculty and staff were trained extensively for the program, and meetings are held bi-monthly throughout the year. The purpose of the meetings is to build class cohesion, to teach the four anti-bullying rules, to help understand the consequences of bullying and their role in bullying situations, and to address issues about bullying as they arise.
