We had the opportunity to have Hank Smith come and talk to us. He helped us understand that we can be "upstanders" instead of bystanders. If we stand up for others, everyone will feel safe and important. We also learned about having boundaries with others.
He explained that when we say something unkind, it is like "crushing chips" inside of someone. He taught us to say, "Don't crush my chips." We all got a bag of Doritos after the assembly.
Thank you PTA for the sign and the chips.
