Throughout the school year, I will be providing updates to keep you informed about what is happening in the Counseling Department here at Merritt Academy. Focus will be placed on our Character Education Program and College and Career Prep.  October is a pretty busy month, so please read all this information carefully.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Witkowski at any time.

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BULLYING PREVENTION MONTH

This month I will be going into classrooms to talk with students about bullying.  Bullying and teasing is an issue that many students will have to deal with in their lifetime. I will define for the students what bullying is and looks like. I will also be discussing with them how to handle if they are getting bullied, or witness another student getting bullied.  My hope is to get students to understand the dangers and consequences that can come from bullying, and to increase positive interactions among students to make Merritt Academy and positive and safe learning environment for all students.
