Say Something: Sands Montessori Takes a Stand Against Bullying
All students and staff celebrated "Say Something Week", a program adapted from the Sandy Hook Promise. Students learned how to recognize the warning signs when students are a danger to themselves or others and the importance of caring for others by telling a trusted adult when someone is in danger. They also learned about their role in being peacemakers and "upstanders" to promote a safe school environment.
Activities included learning about famous peacemakers, signing a school-wide peace pledge, and a written reflection.
The celebration concluded with a school-wide picture. We encourage you to talk to your child about “Say Something” to understand what was learned. This demonstrates that you take this subject seriously and can be one of the trusted adults your child turns to if they suspect someone may need help.
