Elk Grove Charter Students Speak Up!

Students at Elk Grove Charter School implemented their #UnfollowBullying campaign through a variety of venues. In January, Writer’s Club members Sam Dindayal, Kahlil Williams, Hope Reeves, Faith Reeves, Karina Guerrero, and Demetrious Woods presented an anti-bullying campaign that included a survey to their peers during their morning and afternoon classes. At the Elk Grove Charter Governance Committee meeting that evening, students Christina Law and Evan Tyler presented the results of the bullying survey to Board members, parents and students.

EG Charter students also produced two videos as part of their #UnfollowBullying campaign –  one showing an appropriate response and one showing an inappropriate response from bystanders when another student is bullied. The videos were shown during core classes, emphasizing the importance of students speaking up.

EG Charter students were also  invited to sign the #UnfollowBullying pledge.

Art students created posters, which are now displayed  in classrooms as a reminder not to bully and to speak up against bullying.

Across the district, EGUSD students continue to send the message to their peers about cyberbullying: It’s Not Cool! As we head into the end of the school year, we warmly invite all schools to submit events, activities and lessons stemming from the #UnfollowBullying campaign.


Sheldon High School Students Speak Up Through Their Artwork

Sheldon High School promoted the district wide #UnfollowBullying campaign by having students pledge to do their part in preventing bullying from occurring around them. Students were given the #UnfollowBullying blue wristbands after pledging as reminders of their commitment.  Those with twitter accounts were given the opportunity to sign their Twitter names on Twitter bird cut outs. These cut outs were then displayed on a tree next to the  giant sized pledge poster.

Sheldon High School also created an official Twitter account and encouraged students to #UnfollowBullying.

Two hundred and eighty two SHS students came together to pledge to support #UnfollowBullying.

Sheldon did not stop there. They continued to weave the campaign into the classroom. Shawn Sullivan, founder of the Animation Program and animation teacher at Sheldon, encouraged his students to show support of the campaign through their artwork. The Animation and Game Design Program has grown to be one of the most popular programs at Sheldon and Shawn’s students did a brilliant job of  showcasing the blue #UnfollowBullying wristbands throughout their work.

Sheldon High school is stepping up as a community to inspire others to challenge and delete cyberbullying. Way to go Sheldon!
