Update on Cyberbullying/Bullying Parent Seminar

posted Apr 21, 2011, 4:33 PM by Joyce Middle School PTO Communications

We have exciting news!  Andrea Harding and her husband, Channel 5 Anchor, Ed Harding will be joining us on Wednesday Night, April 27th at the parent anti-bullying seminar!  Andrea and Ed are passionate in supporting parent's voices to end bullying.   As Originating Principals for anti bull-e gear they will kick off the seminars by sharing their experience and learning about bullying in our children's lives.


Presenters from the Massachusetts Aggression Reduction Center @ Bridgewater State University (founded by Dr. Elizabeth Englander to bring Anti-Bullying services to Massachusetts schools) will then share how school problems and cyber-issues impact friendships, and what to discuss with your child to reduce the risk that he or she will become involved. Wondering how to talk to your child about bullying?  Wondering how you can protect your child(ren) from bullying? Learn practical strategies! Learn about recent research on how bullying happens and how parents can partner with schools to prepare and protect their own children. Bullying and cyberbullying can impact children emotionally, academically, and can result in long-standing problems. Education and awareness is the answer.


This parent education seminar is co-sponsored by the Joyce and Kennedy Middle School PTOs and Woburn Police S.R.O. Division.

Parents of all students are welcome.  Call your friends, and join us to learn more about how you can add your voice to putting an end to bullying !!  If you have any questions, please contact the Joyce or Kennedy Middle School PTOs.
