Anti-bullying, school safety program Dec. 3
Bullying is an issue everywhere, even in Gettysburg.
In an effort to make people aware of bullying and how to make it stop, a program will be held on bully-related topics on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the school gym starting at 6:30 for students, staff, parents, and public.
Terry Stulken and Byron Utter of the Midwest Center for School Safety will be present the program, “A School Safety Presentation, A Safe School = Successful Students”. Topics presented, in an age appropriate manner include Bullying, Sexual Harassment, Sexting, Cyber-Bullying, Social Media and Cyber Survivership.
Stulken and Utter have 66 years of combined teaching experience and have presented in over 120 schools in Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, and Colorado, to over 80,000 students.
Gettysburg School Counselor Kim Goebel said students will be given various incentives to encourage their parents to attend the presentation that will be held at 6:30 p.m. that night. Stulken and Utter give a dynamic presentation that everyone in the community is welcome to attend. Mrs. Goebel encourages everyone to take part in the evening, adding that you will not want to miss this presentation!
Babysitting will be provided in the school lunchroom by the FCCLA organization for those wishing to attend the program.
