Helping Parents to Raise Upstanders
(A person who stands up for their peers when they see bullying happen.)

Monday, March 30, 2015
Oakton Elementary School Auditorium
436 Ridge Avenue, Evanston

Bullying has become an increasingly hot topic among youth, parents, and our community at-large. There are so many elements that parents and guardians need to be aware of to help their children through bullying and conflict at school. Response staff will detail how to identify the difference between conflict and bullying behavior, how to empower your child to resolve conflict or be an upstander to bullying. We will also facilitate a community conversation around how to foster empathy among all students and provide parents with the tools to have discussion around these topics at home.

All District 65 families are welcome to attend. Appropriate for all school-aged children. Childcare and Spanish translation will be provided. Attached is a flyer about the event in English and Spanish.
