Today was Unity Day, a day for people across the country to unite against bullies. I read the story ‘Bullies Never Win’ to the class and we had a great discussion about what bullies do and how we can stop the bullying from continuing. Some of the suggestions were to ignore the bullying and walk away, stand up to the bully, get help from an adult or stick together with other friends. We talked about which adults would be good to talk to about bullying, like Mrs. Ludden, our guidance counselor, Mrs. Marvin, our principal, a teacher, or a parent. I have a feeling that this group of first graders is not going to allow anyone to bully them!

Zoey Barrett and Zachary Fournier rode to school in style today! They both got to ride to school on one of Orrington’s fire trucks! Zoey got her name pulled out in our classroom to earn the ride to school, and she chose Zachary to ride with her. They both said the ride was amazing. Thank you to the Orrington fire department for making Zoey’s and Zachary’s day!
