Week of Respect

Harry C. Sharp Elementary School, along with all schools across the state, will teach about preventing harassment, intimidation and bullying

New Jersey is holding its annual "Week of Respect" program, which was created in 2011 as part of the state's anti-bullying law.


During this week Harry C. Sharp Elementary School, along with all schools across the state, will teach about preventing harassment, intimidation and bullying.
The state's anti-bullying law is considered the toughest in the country. New Jersey had previously recommended schools have anti-bullying policies, but now they're required.

During this week our students will have a number of activities to promote respect for each other and to outline the evil of bullying and how not to be just a bystander.
Books that will be read to students include:
Bully B.E.A.N.S. by Julia Cook and Chester Racoon and the Big Bad Bully by Audrey Penn.
