Scecina, partner schools to host activist Jodee Blanco, adopt her anti-bullying curriculum

Among many positive new initiatives at Scecina this school year, one of them is to enhance the social and emotional well-being of our students by implementing a new anti-bullying curriculum. 

In partnership with Our Lady of Lourdes, Little Flower, and Holy Spirt Catholic schools, Scecina will host bullying survivor, expert, and activist Jodee Blanco (pictured below). Ms. Blanco is one of the country’s pre-eminent voices of the subject of bullying. She is the author of The New York Times bestseller “Please Stop Laughing At Me . . . One Woman’s Inspirational Story.” The book chronicles her years as a student outcast. It has inspired a movement inside the nation’s schools and has become an American classic. 

Ms. Blanco will tell her story of her years as a student outcast to our faculty and staff, and students. Students will have a late-arrival day (9:30 a.m. start) on Tuesday, Sept.  25, 2018, so Ms. Blanco can talk with our teachers in the morning and our students that afternoon. 

At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, the four schools will sponsor Ms. Blanco’s talk for parents, guardians and the community. Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School will host that event. 

Our schools will adopt Ms. Blanco’s anti-bullying curriculum, “It’s NOT Just Joking Around.” This curriculum is saving lives and making headlines. Organizations that endorse her curriculum include the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.s. Department of Justice, National Catholic Educational Association, American School Counselor's Association, and more. 

Please mark your calendars now for Ms. Blanco’s presentation. Together, we can enhance the social and emotional well-being of our students by listening to Jodee Blanco and by implementing her anti-bullying program at our schools and in our homes. I look forward to seeing you at her presentation. 

You will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward
for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
