No Name-Calling Week Gives Students A Chance to Walk In Another’s Shoes
No Name-Calling Week (which took place in schools across the country last week) was introduced at Huntington Middle School with creative activities to remind students to respect and get a long with one another despite their differences. Thanks in large part to school counselor Jenny Hattaway’s acknowledgment of the rise in bullying during middle school, teachers and students embraced the intention of the “outside the box” themed days.
Seventh-grader Paige Brudnicki summed up her No Name-Calling Week experience with thoughtful optimism.
