Peace Village workshops
Staff, students and parents are invited to a series of workshops to learn skills to prevent bullying in our classrooms and common spaces. This is the number one issue our students report on our climate and culture survey every year. We are working to flip the discourse on bullying through our Upstander campaign. Staff are invited to attend two workshops (Wednesday, May 17 and May 31) from 7:30-8:15. These workshops counts for snow hour make-up time. This is open to all staff, including classified staff. This is the message in the flyer provided by Peace Village: Help stop bullying at CVMS. You can become an ally and help make this school a safer place for everyone. Come learn concrete tools in communication and conflict resolution.
I will have a sign up sheet at our staff meeting on Tuesday. In addition students are being offered a series of workshops as well - on May 3 (this Wednesday), May 17 and May 31. Students will be able to attend these workshops during basecamp on these dates. We will make announcements on Monday and Tuesday for these invitational workshops.
