Kahoks United is hosting Anti-bullying Week at Collinsville High School October 15-19, 2018.
Kahoks United is a CHS anti-bullying organization that “encourages students to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact bullying has on our school community.”
Each day of the week will feature a different activity to promote inclusiveness and forgiveness:
Monday, October 15
Challenge: Pay it Forward. All student desks will have a post-it note containing a positive message. Each class period students are encouraged to leave a positive message for the next student. The messages will be collected at the end of the day to create a #Goodvibesonly banner for the football game.
Lunch Activity: Come to the Kahoks United table to sign the bully-free pledge.
Tuesday, October 16
Challenge: Introduce Yourself to Someone New.
Lunch Activity: Picture CHS without bullying by taking a picture with new and old friends at the photo booth.
Wednesday, October 17
Challenge: Why hold on to grudge(s)when you can let it go?
Lunch Activity: Write down the grudge(s) and why you’re holding on to it. Decide to forgive and LET IT GO. Pitch your written response in the Kahoks United “grudge trash.”
Thursday, October 18
