On November 27, 2012, the students of the Ferndale Area Jr. / Sr. High School attended an assembly in conjunction with our Classroom Bullying Meeting. Mr. Boyle, Assistant Principal, walked the students through a review of “What is Bullying” and “What is a Defender.” He reviewed what the HS rules / consequences are for bullying. Lastly, he challenged the entire student/teacher population to take the . . .
“Blue Pinky Promise”
. . . to remind them to not bully and to stop bullying when they see it. When the assembly was over, the staff and students were invited over to the cafeteria and anyone who wanted to participate, had their pinky painted blue by the members of the National Honor Society and signed the Promise banner, pictured below (which will hang in the cafeteria for the remainder of the school year).
