DES students learn to stay CALM over bullying
Delano Elementary School is using a helpful strategy to support students in dealing with bullying. It goes by the acronym CALM (C-cool down, A-assert yourself, L-Look them in the eye, M-Mean what you say), and is a set of actions that can be drawn upon to avoid, and stop, instances of bullying. Character traits that lead to the success of CALM will be emphasized and discussed each month with students creating posters that will display their understanding of the concept. For the month of February, “Honesty” is the featured trait. Going forward through May, respect and responsibility, caring and sportsmanship with be highlighted.
