                                        NO NAME CALLING WEEK
Dear Parents, 

The week of January 24 through January 28 is the eighth annual national "No Name-Calling Week." That's when thousands of elementary and middle schools focus on the issue of tolerance and bullying and why name-calling is wrong.   The No Name-Calling Day Project seeks to focus national attention on the problem of name-calling in schools. The Project also seeks to provide students, educators, and families with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going conversation about ways to eliminate name-calling in their communities. In our schools, we strive to end bullying and teach children the importance of understanding differences and treating everyone with respect.

Family members play an important role in shaping children's attitudes towards name-calling.  As your children's teachers, we would like to encourage families to discuss with your children the importance of no name-calling or bullying.  Remind them that they should remember to consider how they would feel if they were called a name or bullied.  Encourage them to think before they speak.  Please promote kindness and respect towards others. Above all, continue to be a positive role model for your children.

A suggested website for information on no name-calling can be found at

Together we can put an end to bullying.
