October 2015~  October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  Mrs. Schwab, Guidance Counselor, has been teaching Classroom Guidance lessons to all classes at Royalston Community School during the month of October.  She put a chart poster up in 3rd – 6th grade classes with the Massachusetts Bullying Prevention Law on it.  She explained to classes what kinds of behaviors are kind, and which behaviors are hurtful and not allowed at school.  Mrs. Schwab read the book Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun, By Maria Dismondy, to Mrs. Hoegen’s 2nd Grade class, which teaches children to respect each other’s differences.  The main character in the book, Lucy, learns to do a “good tell” to her grandfather when a boy named Ralph teases her about what she eats for lunch, and about her beautiful red, curly hair.  Then Lucy reaches out to help Ralph when he gets stuck on the monkey bars.  Lucy learns that it’s important to stand up for yourself and get adult help in school, and at home, if a student is teasing you.  The 2nd grade class did Turn and Talks about the book, and brainstormed kind and not kind behaviors.  Parents and Guardians can contact Mrs. Schwab at RCS on Tuesdays and Thursdays at (978) 249-2900, or by email at rschwab@arrsd.org
