Response to Bullying

At Cunha, we value a positive school culture, allowing all students to express themselves openly and without fear of judgement. We take a strong stance against bullying and have made it our top priority to ensure the safety and well-being of all students. Counselors recently went into all 6th grade Social Studies classrooms to present Anti-Bullying presentations for students. Topics for 6th grade included the definition of bullying, the difference between tattling and telling someone when there's a problem, and "Stop, Walk, and Talk" (our method to alleviate bullying). 

Stop: Tell the person to "stop" in a clear loud voice. Make sure they know that you are not joking and exactly what behavior you want them to stop.

Walk: Walk away from the person. Create distance and avoid them wherever possible. If it is in class, ask the teacher to move seats.

Talk: Tell someone, any trusted adult. Let them know what is happening and that you need help.

We encourage students to visit the counseling office if they are feeling uncomfortable, unsafe, or unhappy at school and urge parents to do the same. If you are worried about your child please let us know.
