October is Anti-Bullying Month

October is Anti-Bullying Month


Anti-Bullying Month, which begins with the Week of Respect here in New Jersey’s schools, is a month-long event to prevent childhood bullying and promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. In a series of grade-level and classroom meetings, Eisenhower Middle School students are provided with information about the New Jersey Laws Against Discrimination, the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights, and New Jersey's Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying (HIB) legislation which protects the rights of all students against discrimination based on race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or a mental, physical or sensory disability, or by any other distinguishing characteristic. Words of Kindness are shared by and with students on our ETV broadcasts during the month of October, and various activities are planned to teach and promote respect toward self and others. Students in eighth grade were provided this week with information about the rights of students to access equal educational opportunities including the right to use locker rooms and restrooms that are consistent with a student’s gender identity, and for all students to be informed of the spaces available for any student who does not want to share locker rooms or restrooms with other students. We work hard to ensure that our school is a place where all students are made to feel welcome, respected, and protected and to remain sensitive to the rights of all students. If any student or parent has a question or concern related to student protection and privacy, anti-bullying, or mental health, they are encouraged to reach out to their guidance counselor, who is available to talk with students and parents regarding any issues that may impact a child’s school experience.
