We are planning our tenth annual Building Allies to End Bullying Week which will take place on October 28-November 1. We will highlight the importance of students becoming allies to end bullying – reinforcing a community of caring at our site. This year our theme is Difference and Diversity: “Being Different, Belonging Together.”
During Building Allies Week, lessons will have a focus on helping students to develop the skills, understanding and confidence they need to be an ally. The lessons will be varied and involve our students in many unique and creative ways which will be linked to our Difference and Diversity theme. On Monday we will post a “Wall of Positive Thoughts” in the quad where students can take a moment throughout the day to post and/or read inspirational words; on Tuesday students will have the opportunity to take part in an activity where pieces of paper, containing stereotypes, are dropped into a small pool of water creating a visual of hatred being dissolved; on Wednesday our student council will be presenting a building allies play and on Thursday we are going to round out the week with a “Being Different, Belonging Together” themed dance.
Please reflect with your son/daughter about their week at school. This definitely creates a conversation piece that with your foundation can make scholarly students.
We are looking forward to a wonderful week ahead!
Ready, Set, GO!

Zero Tolerance for Bullying
Discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying are not acceptable ways to treat others. It is the intent of the Hayward Unified School District to provide a process for students, parents, and members of the community to address complaints of bullying to appropriate district personnel and to receive a prompt response to this complaint without fear of retaliation.
