FIGHTING BULLYING WITH AWARENESS  

Section by Halie Burnside

Q&A with Mrs. Emily Myrick

Q: What is bullying to you? How do you define bullying?

A: To me, bullying is any inappropriate behavior that is continuously displayed toward a student or a group of students that may lead to harming a student or a group of students physically, emotionally, socially, or academically.

     I define bullying as a pattern of behavior that is exhibited toward a student more than once. The pattern of behavior must have the effect of physically harming a student, must be severe, persistent, and pervasive enough to either create an intimidating or threatening educational environment, have the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.

Q: What is your goal through all your efforts to prevent bullying in BCS?

A:  My goal is to ensure the best quality education for our students at Beekman Charter School, and along with ensuring the best quality education, I want to ensure a positive learning environment that is bully free every day.

Q: What is the hardest thing about being a Belle?

A: The hardest thing about being a Belle is that we have very little time to learn a dance and then perform it.

Q: What made you want to be a Belle?

A: I took dance when I was younger and wanted to continue dancing. I also wanted to support our school in some way. I also like all the different uniforms and a chance to go to Nationals in Orlando, Florida.

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

FDR establishes modern Thanksgiving holiday:

The tradition of celebrating the holiday on Thursday dates back to the early history of the Plymouth colonies, when post harvest holidays were celebrated on the weekday regularly set aside as “Lecture Day,” a church meeting where topical sermons were presented. The first Thanksgiving was in 1621 when Plymouth governor William Bradford invited local Indians to join the Pilgrims.

   Videos have been played, assemblies have taken place, various activities have been implemented, and other events have occured for bullying prevention month in the past two weeks. I can only pray that all of our students have been attentive throughout the past two weeks because we need to take a stand against bullying. This behavior is unacceptable and should never be displayed. We should encourage and inspire one another! I hope that today is the day that everyone will see that bullying is not cool. You can be the change! Let’s be the change BCS!

Q&A with Mrs. Jessie Thompson 

Q: What is bullying to you? How do you define bullying?

A: Bullying to me is denying a person the opportunity to be themselves and calling attention to those wonderful differences in a negative way. Bullying demeans, humiliates, and tries to spread the lie that everyone/thing should conform physically, mentally, and emotionally to the set standard internalized in the bully themself.

Q: What (in general) do you think of bullying How do you feel about it?

A: Bullying to me is unacceptable and shows a deep need inside of the perpetrator. I feel that it must be dealt with immediately and effectively and that intervention for the bully is a necessary step to ensure they can receive the resources they need to heal.

Q: Have you been bullied?

A: If I was, I never recognized it because I loved everybody and assumed they did the same. And I was okay with everything I was and was not. I was happy with myself.

Q: How can you prevent bullying? What can you do to help?

A: A policy of “No tolerance for bullying” can help but also educating students on accepting and celebrating differences would be beneficial. People who accept others.

Q: Do you think BCS is doing a good job preventing bullying?

A: I believe that the leadership and faculty at BCS goes to great lengths to ensure all students feel safe, loved, and respected for the wonderful individuals they are!!!

 

Q&A with Lexi Davis (10)

Q: What is bullying to you? How do you define bullying?

A: Bullying to me is disrespecting or making of fun of someone’s personality, position in life, and/or role.

Q: What (in general) do you think of bullying How do you feel about it?

A: I feel like nowadays bullying is hard to recognize or identify.

Q: How has bullying affected you, your friends, family, people around you?

A: Bullying really affected my self esteem.

Q: What do you think you can do to prevent bullying?

A:  If you or someone is being bullied, I feel you should tell a teacher. And if you feel uncomfortable to tell a teacher, I suggest go talk to someone close to you. Also, kill with kindness.
