At NBC Elementary a school-wide approach to prevention is being implemented with the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. The Olweus program is based on many years of research and positive results. Students will learn about the program at kick off events in the fall. In addition, elementary teachers have been trained in interventions, regular class meetings are held in the homerooms, and rules and expectations are posted throughout the building. This program involves all of us: parents, teachers, staff and children. We need your support to be effective in creating a safe and caring climate in our school and are looking forward to a positive collaboration with you.
