Put a Stop to Bullying

PTA sponsored event provided perspective and tips
By Michael Mell
Bullying is a problem that has, in the past decade, received prominent notice by schools and municipal agencies and the public. With the advent of the Internet has come “cyber-bullying,” a new arena that can be equally, if not more frightening to victims: so much so that a number of suicides have been reported. As part of its ongoing efforts to combat and prevent bullying, the Haldane PTA held a workshop on Nov. 10. Introduced and moderated by Haldane Superintendent Dr. Mark Villanti, the evening’s format began with introductory remarks from the panel, followed by questions from PTA President Laura Danilov and Vice-president Heather Schroder.
