April 15-19 will be “No Name Calling Week” at Emerald! The Anti-Bully Committee is promoting a No Name Calling Week for students and families. Each day there will be a dress day highlighted with a message behind it to remind everyone to treat all with respect and encourage fellow classmates in a positive manner. For example: Monday: Wear red, white, and blue. United we stand, divided we fall.

Tuesday: Wear two different shoes. Walking a mile in another’s shoes can be difficult and eye opening.

Wednesday: Wear mismatched clothing. We are all different and should appreciate our differences.

Thursday: Wear your shirt backwards. Words can hurt and you can’t take them back. A good person always has another’s back. Friday: Wear sport team clothing. We are all good sports if we treat each other like we are on the same team.
