More than one thousand middle school students from four area schools came together Tuesday morning in Sheldon for an anti-bullying assembly. Billed as a “Bullying Supersession”, the assembly, which was held at the Sheldon High School, was designed to tackle the subject of bullying, and provide the students with information on how to get out of a bullying situation.
Sheldon Middle School Principal Cindy Barwick talks a little bit about the Bullying Supersession.
Barwick says bullying is something that everybody knows goes on, and that it takes many different forms.
Barwick says that if someone is being bullied, they have options to extricate themselves from that situation.
Barwick says that the Sheldon Community Schools takes bullying very seriously, and like every school system in Iowa, has policies and procedures in place to stop it in it’s tracks.
Tuesday morning’s Bullying Supersession was attended by middle-schoolers from Sheldon, MOC-Floyd Valley, Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn, Spalding Catholic and Remsen-Union.
