Today I am making plans for my school's efforts to stop name-calling, an ongoing concern. This will be the fifth year our school has participated in No Name-Calling Week the last week in January. If you need resources go to No Name-Calling Week . We are going to kick-off our participation with an announcement on our Friday TV broadcast the week before. We will have morning announcements, activities, a bulletin board, a notice home to parents, etc. I try to make it easy for teachers to participate by giving them simple ideas and ready made activities. Our teachers do morning meetings (Responsive Classroom) so that is a perfect venue to discuss name-calling. We tie this in to our schoolwide bullying program so it is another reminder that we are striving for a positive school climate where everyone uses kind words and treats others with respect.
