In an effort to help our Wolfhound students continue to build healthy, long-lasting relationships, Saint Patrick Catholic School hosted the Box Out Bullying organization on Monday, October 16 and Tuesday, October 17. Bullying can be a tough topic to discuss, but through a series of student, parent, and family sessions, our community came together to address this very important issue.
On Monday evening, Wolfhound parents and students in third through eighth grades were invited to a family event facilitated by Jeremy Rubenstein, founder of Box Out Bullying. This event engaged students and their parents in a dynamic learning experience in topics including grit and resilience, healthy self-esteem, and online safety.
On Tuesday morning, parents attended sessions that provided a learning experience focused on equipping them with the skills to identify bullying. Parents walked away with empowering tools to guide children to be stand-up citizens and key players in safely solving bullying situations. At the same time, our Wolfhound students attended one of three Box Out Bullying presentations that catered to different grade levels. The interactive and funny performances taught students about bullying and how to prevent it.
We would like to thank the Box Out Bullying organization for visiting Saint Patrick Catholic School and all of the students and parents that actively participated in the various sessions and events. The Life of Relationship is a key component to every child’s Total Formation, and it requires our Wolfhound parents, teachers, and staff to help our students grow and thrive in this aspect of their lives. Learning how to identify disconnecting habits and practice peaceful conflict resolution techniques not only aligns with our beliefs as the only Catholic Glasser Quality School in the United States, but will help our students show the world what it truly means to be a Wolfhound!
