October is national Bullying Prevention month and on October 20th we will celebrate Unity Day!
Throughout the month of October, the FRCS community will show support, hope and unity to represent that we are united against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion. Scholars in grades K-12 will participate in activities and discussions all month long that support this message. On October 20th, all students are invited to dress down and wear the color ORANGE in support of Unity Day. Elementary School students will participate in the Unity Day Parade, and their efforts will be supported by students in Middle and High School.
Also throughout the month of October, we'll be sharing activities that students can do on their own time at home, that support the Unity Day Theme. The first activity that we ask our FRCS scholars to complete is this:
- Click on this link, and tell us a word or phrase that you think of when you hear the word UNITY. We will create a word cloud using all of your submissions to share back to our community at the end of the month.
Thank you for your participation! We can't wait to share your thoughts!
Leading up to Bullying Prevention month, scholars in the Elementary School participated in "Start With Hello Week". They had a daily challenge and incorporated activities in their Character Education Classes.
The scholars enjoyed the activities and made some new friends as well as building a sense of community. They practiced introducing themselves to others and discussed the importance of including others. If you would like more information the website is sandyhookpromise.org. These activities promoted community, kindness, diversity, and friendship which ties in with our message of Unity for this month.
