"Stop Bullying Before it Starts”
The Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L. 2010, c.122) requires that the week beginning with the first Monday in October of each year be designated as the Week of Respect in New Jersey. In recognition of the importance of social and emotional learning and character education, school districts are required to observe the week by providing age-appropriate instruction focusing on preventing HIB. (Harassment, Intimidation, & Bullying).
Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a square pumpkin who lives in a round pumpkin patch world. The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, by Joe Troiano, delivers a message of tolerance and kindness in a fun, engaging format. After reading the story, students will bring the story to life at the Spookley Storybook Trail located in our preschool hallway! Each part of the story teaches students social emotional concepts and anti bullying strategies and vocabulary.
