Bullying is aggressive behavior that is intentional and that involves an imbalance of power. Most often, it is repeated over time. Our bullying prevention program is called the Olweus Bully Prevention Program. This is a researched based, universal intervention program for the reduction and prevention of bully/victim issues.
Here on Saint John XXIII campus, we refer to our approach as C.A.R.E.
C.A.R.E. – Care, Accountability, Respect, Environment
- Caring – The concern for the well-being and dignity of others.
- Accountability – taking responsibility for the potential impact of our words and actions and their consequences.
- Respect – tolerance for the rights of others and an appreciation for unique qualities of all creation.
- Environment – unites all individuals in our Catholic School community through a life-long commitment to prevent bullying and violence.
Reporting Bullying Problems
Students and parents can report concerns to all staff here on campus via email. phone call or in person. If bullying is suspected, the reporter is asked to complete a diocesan form that will generate a formal investigation.
A CARE BOX is located in the front office for students/parents to write a note if something is bothering them. Notes may be left anonymously.
