Bully Busters


This page is dedicated to the topic of bullying.  Each week there will be definitions, strategies and/or information pertaining to this important and relevant topic.

Bullying is defined by the Connetquot Central School District  as a form of harassment that consists of inappropriate persistent behavior including social isolation, threats, intimidation or embarrassment of others, treating others cruelly, terrorizing, coercing, or habitual put-downs and /or badgering others.

At John Pearl we have an anti-bullying task force.  We meet once a month to discuss how to promote good character and discuss activities to bring awareness and education about bullying to our students.
