Seventh Graders “Owning Up”
Owning Up is a new class that is being taught to all seventh graders through PACT. Janet Harrison, from Hoosier Hills, teaches the class. It started on Tuesday, August 30.
Owning Up teaches about social cruelty, standing up and not being a bystander to bullying.
“Our goal with this curriculum is to give students another way to deal with conflict and how to confront social cruelty without resulting in physical violence or aggressiveness,” said Harrison.
Seventh graders can expect to go to room 208 on Fridays during either their Health or Gym classes. Eighths graders will begin the class next semester.
