"BE A BUDDY, NOT A BULLY! WE FILL BUCKETS AT SCANDIA ELEMENTARY!
Students at Scandia Elementary take part in the Olweus Bullying Prevention and Peaceful Bus Program. Both of these programs are funded through a grant from Hazelden. The programs teach children skills to use when confronted with a bullying situation and also how to help others who may be part of a bullying situation. Many teachers at Scandia also have been trained in the Responsive Classroom model of classroom management which builds on students' capacity to care about their community.To learn more about the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, click on the link below.Olweus Bullying PreventionStudents are recognized as "filling someone's bucket" when they are caught doing an act of kindness. Each week, the bucket fillers are announced on SENN, our news network, given a certificate from the principal, and their star is added to the Bucket Filling Hall of Fame.
