Bullying presentations at schools

T he administration and guidance office at Whitehall High School will host an information program on bullying and conflict resolution for parents and other members of the community later this month.

The program will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18, inside the library at Whitehall High School.

The program will focus on conflict resolution, bullying and student relationships. Administrators will provide parents with advice and strategies on how to deal with those issues and resolve conflicts.

The program is the first in what administrators hope becomes a series of informational events.

Parents and family members of students in grades Kindergarten through 12th are invited to attend.

Light refreshments will be available.

 

Whitehall Elementary School will host its own bullying program next week.

Students and faculty will attend a “Sweethearts and Antibullying” presentation on Friday, Dec. 21.

The “Sweethearts and Antibullying” program was founded by Queensbury resident Jason Spector and his former college wrestling teammate Tom Murphy.

The program is intended not for bullies or the bullied, but for parents and students who may witness bullying.

The presentation is expected to begin at 9:30 a.m. and will last for a little more than an hour.
