Take a Stand Together

Last year more than one hundred Grinnell students (twenty from each school) took a stand against bullying during the Homecoming parade. They wore t-shirts with “Take a Stand Together – Grinnell United Against Bullying” printed boldly on the front. Look for even more students this year in the parade on Thurs., Oct. 2.  Students also plan to wear their shirts to school on Mon., Oct. 6, which is a World Day of Bullying Prevention. Parents and community members are encouraged to as well. 

Grinnell Schools adopted the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) during the 2012-13 school year. With over forty years of research and successful implementation all over the world, OBPP is a whole-school program that has been proven to prevent or reduce bullying in schools. This year the G-N district Olweus committee is reaching out to parents and the community for more involvement and support. The committee has invited Youth Frontiers’ Founder and CEO, Joe Cavanaugh to Grinnell on Wed., Feb. 4. Organizers hope to fill the high school auditorium for his interactive and energetic presentation. His message will be filled with strategies for teaching kids about character. Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that partners with schools to build positive communities.  Grinnell schools have hosted YF Retreats for 5th, 7th, 9th grades, and the G-N faculty.
