    October is National Bullying Prevention Month

    “Together Against Bullying, United for Kindness, Acceptance and Inclusion.” that’s the message during PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month in October. To bring attention to this powerful message we are encouraging our students and staff at Dorn to wear orange on Friday October 27th, to show our support for Unity Day. That is when scores of people around the country will join the movement to “Make it Orange and Make it End”!

    Remember: Friday October 27th wear orange because “Dorn Kids Don’t Bully”!

     

    Ease the Tease

    In honor of national Bullying Prevention month, Dorn Elementary School is excited to announce the return of the Imagination Theater’s presentation of their show “Ease the Tease: A Bully Prevention Program” to our students on Thursday October 26th. This show explores the differences between “friendly” and “hurtful” teasing and emphasizes the responsibility everyone has to treat one another with respect. Actors will find themselves in a series of teasing situations and volunteers are invited on the stage to steer the scene to a positive conclusion. Dorn students will learn skills to help practice responding and coping with teasing. When students can alleviate the pain of a tease. They discover the power to stop teasing. This is the sixith year we are welcoming Imagination Theater to Dorn, and they are always a big hit with our students and staff.
