The school counselors will be visiting every PE class to review information about bullying and ways to be an upstander. School counselors will have grade level chats with MSAM students at another scheduled time.
In PE classes students can share how they will be an Upstander on a piece of our Anti-bullying chain which will be hung in the school as a visual reminder to be an Upstander.
