(Schools Together Are Responding)
Say it Clear... No Bullying Here!!!
Welcome to the fourteenth year of the Darien Public Schools S.T.A.R. project! S.T.A.R. is the result of the Board of Education policy relating to student behavior and bullying. It supports the character traits that are the building blocks for our district’s approach to positive behavior. Those traits are specified in the “Kids’ Code”, which is in effect in each of our schools.
Darien Elementary Schools-Kids’ Code:
At our school, we are:
kind and accepting,
honest and responsible,
safe and peaceful,
respectful to all.
Beginning later this month, as part of our home/school connection, a book will be circulated throughout each class approximately every three months. There will be a total of three books for the year. This age appropriate literature was selected because it encompasses both the spirit of the Kids’ Code as well as our position on bullying. Please take time to preview the books. We encourage your involvement in the reading and discussions of these books. We have provided carefully designed discussion questions that have been attached to the front cover of the book. These books provide an excellent opportunity for parents and child/children to participate in meaningful discussions and to bring an awareness of positive behaviors that ensure a safe, respectful, and peaceful school community.
Along with each book, you will find a Darien Public Schools S.T.A.R. Record sheet. After you have read and discussed the S.T.A.R. book with your child, please sign the record sheet and have your child return it to school with the book. If you choose to provide any comments, there is a place for you to do so on the bottom of the record.
Thank you for your participation. We are looking forward to continuing our home/school partnership.
