BULLYING PREVENTION DAY
At Eagle View and throughout the Fairfax HS pyramid, our community learns and follows the following bullying prevention rules:
- We will not bully others.
- We will include others if we see someone being left out.
- We will help others who are bullied.
- If we know someone is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and at home.
To reinforce this message, all students in the Fairfax HS pyramid are encouraged to wear the Fairfax high school colors and their “Stand By Me” wristbands on Fri, January 23, 2015. The Fairfax HS color is royal blue.
Teachers and staff will be reinforcing the message that our school community helps one another by wearing their blue “No Bullying-Stand By Me” t-shirts on January 23 as well. Thanks for your support.
