Attention all SES families! SAVE THE DATE for a very special event on Monday, April 26.
New York Times bestselling author, survivor, and celebrated anti-bullying activist Jodee Blanco will be giving a seminar on school bullying survival and prevention for parents and children, sponsored by St. Elizabeth Catholic School on Monday, April 26 at 5:30 p.m.
The seminar will include a 90-minute workshop featuring Jodee’s compelling personal story of her struggle from fifth grade through high school as the target of severe school bullying. She will share what her parents and teachers did that helped, what didn’t and why, as well as offer similar insights from the tens of thousands of bullied students she has worked with across the nation. The workshop will also include specific, practical advice on how to intervene if a child is the victim, bully or bystander, from the rare point of view of someone who’s actually lived through it and now dedicated her life to helping others. In addition, Jodee will address the plight of the “adult survivor of peer abuse” and offer suggestions on how to overcome those open wounds from the past.
If you are an educator, parent, student or someone still coping with painful memories of peer abuse, this is a seminar you won’t want to miss. I encourage you to attend for what promises to be a meaningful, moving and informative evening.
More information and details to come! There will be an incentive for all families in attendance that night.
