October is Bullying Prevention Month!
All month long,
kids from preschool through middle school can sign a pledge
card to ‘Be a Buddy, not a Bully’.
Kids who sign a pledge card will receive a special treat to help remind them
of their commitment. For tweens and teens, we are also promoting being a buddy
online with the slogan ‘Tweet others the Way you want to be Tweeted’.
Teens will received a pledge card to put in their wallet, a wrist band and
pen to help remind them of their commitment.
Also, next week, October 12 – 18 is Teen Read Week. The theme this year
is “Turn Dreams into Reality”. The library will have a special display
to celebrate. Any teen who checks out a book next week will receive a bookmark,
wrist band or key chain. Below is a link to the Teen Read Week website which
shows the art work, etc.
