Welcome to Harmony Week! According to Stopbullying.gov, bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. This behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Today marks the first day of Oak Lawn Community High School’s Harmony week. Alliance club urges you to put an end to bullying. Each day we will provide you with information and opportunities for you to choose kind. To kick of the week, we will be hosting an Art activity during Spartan plus in room 356 with Ms. Torres. Come and get creative!
