"Through effective leadership and excellence in teaching and learning, our mission is to graduate all students prepared for successful academic futures and to become contributing members of a multicultural society."
The Luther Burbank School Districted is dedicated to providing a safe and secure learning and teaching environment for students, staff and teachers. As part of this effort our school community comes together to raise awareness for bullying prevention and to reflect on where we have been, where we are now, and where we hope to be in the years to come. This year’s Bullying Prevention Awareness Month marks the 10th anniversary of its initiation by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center. Since 2006, the event has grown to an entire month of education and awareness activities, and is being recognized by schools and communities throughout the world.
This month, October, serves as a reminder that bullying prevention must be addressed, and one way to accomplish this is through educating ourselves, our communities and the youth in our lives. We ask that you take the time this month to become more aware of the serious consequences of bullying and to learn more about what you can do prevent bullying. These efforts are highly important for parents and teachers, but also for youth themselves. Our amazing School Mental Health Team will be working with students, staff and teachers on a variety of fun and educational activities to raise awareness and teach students skills to prevent and appropriately respond to bullying.
Some of our planned activities are the school-wide creation of our Unity Tree on which students, staff and teachers create leaves expressing their committment to a safe and secure learning environment free of bullying and intimidation.
On Wednesday, October 19, we will celebrate Unity Day. All students, staff, teachers and parents/guardians are encouraged to wear the color orange in support of unity and friendship and a sign of our commitment to preventing and responding to bullying.
If you would like more information, please speak to or email Ms. Diana Benavidez or Mr. Jesus Angulo, our School Mental Health Team.
