Welcome back!

Welcome back!
Gina Cacioppo shared this with me and asked that I share it with all of you.
Just wanted to share a special on Bullying covered by dateline NBC. The special addressed not only the agressor and victim, but the bystanders and concept of peer pressure. I find this topic very important to the health and wellbeing of our students. I have attached links to a few clips of the show.
