LINDEN — October is an important month in the Linden Public Schools. During this month, individual schools throughout the district acknowledge the “Week of Respect,” “School Violence Awareness Week” and “Red Ribbon Week.”

Linden Highland Avenue School No. 10 celebrated the Week of Respect by participating in an active discussion with the school social worker about respect, why it’s important, people and objects that we show respect to and even brainstormed ways to continue to show respect towards others throughout the school year. At the end of the discussion, students in grades 1-5 were asked to design a “red brick” that described what respect is or would look like. This brick created “Respect Road” which is hung in the main hallway of the building for all to see and take pride in. This road is also behind the students pictured.

During School Violence Awareness Week, students took part in various activities regarding conflict resolution, managing anger and increasing their awareness about bullying. Students were also asked to bring in a canned food item which was donated to a local food pantry. This canned food drive worked to reiterate the message that together, “We CAN take a Stand against School Violence and Bullying.”
