Edgewood's Character Counts program is designed to help students learn good character skills that will help them be positive contributors to our society. We want to help our students learn how to interact in appropriate ways with each other. As a part of this program, we are going to host Mr. Mike Dreiblatt, author of "How to Stop Bullying and Social Aggression" and national speaker, to talk about bullying with our K to 8th grade students. On March 13th, Mr. Dreiblatt will be meeting with students to talk about bullying. He will also do training with the staff after school and will meet with parents in the evening. We believe this program will be beneficial to all our students and help us learn how to build positive character here on our campus.
Here is the workshop schedule:
Kindergarten thru 2nd Grade at 12:50-1:20 pm
6th thru 8th Grade at 1:25-2:25 pm
3rd thru 5th Grade at 2:30-3:30 pm
Faculty & Staff at 4:00-5:00 pm
Parents at 7:00-8:30 pm
