Sheldon High School students pledge to #UnfollowBullying through weeklong campaign

For the second year in a row, Sheldon High School students will pledge to #UnfollwBullying through a weeklong awareness campaign at their school.

On Monday, January 27, the weeklong campaign kicks off with a photo pledge booth set up for students to take a “Stop Hate” photo pledge and receive an #UnfollowBullying wristband.  Throughout the week, anti-bullying statistics will be displayed around the school – on flyers, posters, lunch trays, student store items and in the daily bulletin.  In addition to the various activities, a slide show will be presented in the cafeteria throughout the week highlighting statistics and public service announcements against bullying.

Each day of the week at Sheldon will have a specific focus:

Mon. Jan. 27th

Tues. Jan. 28th

Wed. Jan. 29th

Thurs. Jan. 30th

Fri. Jan. 31st

What is bullying?

Cyberbullying

Effects of Bullying – Depression, Suicide and School Violence

How to get help

“Being An Ally” & “Give a Compliment, Get a Compliment”

The #UnfollowBullying campaign launched throughout the Elk Grove Unified School District in November 2012.  The student-led campaign was created when EGUSD Superintendent Steven M. Ladd, Ed.D. asked his student advisory committee to select a digital citizenship topic, create a name and design a campaign.  #UnfolllowBullying recognizes that students are the ones who will lead the charge in their online communities to ensure that all students are treated with respect and kindness.

After the weeklong campaign at Sheldon, #UnfollowBullying committee students plan to reach out to their feeder schools (Maeola Beitzel, Arthur C. Butler, Robert J. Fite and Mary Tsukamoto elementary schools and T.R. Smedberg Middle School) to help them create their own anti-bullying pledge walls, activities and possibly a mini-assembly hosted by Sheldon students to effectively reach out to the younger students.
