Unity Day

This month, students have been learning all about stop, walk, and talk as the key to responding appropriately to disrespect. In a nutshell, you should signal the person to stop the disrespectful behavior. Walk away or turn your body if the person does not stop, and talk to the closest adult if the problem still continues. Students celebrated Unity Day on October 19th as a component of this larger bullying prevention program. Unity Day festivities included wearing orange and signing the following pledge as a of symbol of commitment to creating a respectful school community.
I pledge…
…to always strive to be respectful even when it is difficulty
…to practice stop, walk, and talk when I see disrespect, and
…to use a stopping strategy when someone gives me the stop signal.

In addition, Respect Bingo runs throughout the remainder of the month to encourage and recognize students for positive behavior toward others.

Read for the Record

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign mobilizes millions of people to celebrate literacy by participating in the largest shared reading experience. The event takes place on October 27th as we read together in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between to put children first by shining a spotlight on the importance of high-quality early education.  At Stonehouse K-2 students paired with 3-5 students to not only enjoy the book, The Bear Ate My Sandwich by Julia Sarcone Roach, but also to read with a buddy or complete an activity.  We registered over 780 readers for the national campaign.
