The second class meeting focused on the first of Acadia's anti-bullying rules: We will not bully others.  Student discussion focused on understanding the difference between bullying, fighting, and "rough-and-tumble" play.  Students also discussed how situations can turn into bullying and what examples they have experienced or witnessed.  By understanding that bullying can take many different forms, students can take charge of their own behavior and stop bullying before it even starts.

Today marks the kick-off of Acadia's Anti-Bullying campaign!  In classrooms around the school, regular activity was suspended so that teachers and students could begin to have a dialogue about bullying in Acadia.  Students and teachers will be talking about how bullying affects others, how it can be prevented, and how it can be dealt with.  Today, the class meeting format was introduced and a kick-off video was shown, created by Acadia's own Jen Rosney and Christine Quatraro.
