    Island Park Says No to Bullying

    Bullying Prevention Week in the Island Park Public Schools emphasized kindness, acceptance, respect and other positive qualities. Lincoln Orens Middle School and Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School both participated in the “United Against Bullying” effort with a series of theme days that kicked off on Nov. 16.

    Students wore attire that brought awareness of the anti-bullying movement, signed anti-bullying pledges and celebrated altruistic behavior and decency. Hegarty students created a video that was shown throughout the school, and Lincoln Orens students participated in their annual poster contest. The program also included announcements that focused on the topics of bullying prevention and respect.

    Character education opportunities such as this are ongoing initiatives in the Island Park Public Schools. Throughout the school year, students are encouraged to demonstrate positive attributes and show compassion toward others. The district is proud of the many acts of kindness that are shared each day.
