Phew! So it looks like 2013 National Bullying Prevention and Awareness Month is behind us! I hope you all partook in some awesome anti-bullying events or even better, some pro-kindness events. Some schools and individuals really stepped it up a notch, and I want to take a moment to share some of the fantastic initiative that were sent me in the last two months. The first of these recap posts features Halzet Middle School, of Halzet, New Jersey.
During Week of Respect, Hazlet Middle School students were asked to contribute quotes related to kindness, which were read on the loud speaker for all to hear. Students were also asked to sign a pledge to do at least one act of kindness during the week. In addition to student activities, Principal Christine McCoid invited bullying speaker, Ronnie Bachman, to talk to the students about acceptance and diversity.

Thanks very much to Hazlet Middle School for sharing your Week of Kindness with us!. We hope students will remember these lessons throughout the rest of the school year and beyond!
