October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Westgate is committed to this effort. In fact, not only have we been the recipient of a multi-year bully prevention grant from the Colorado Department of Education, we are also highlighted in the nationally distributed documentary film, The Upstanders, that explores all aspects and consequences of cyber-bullying.
Join us on October 28th at 6 p.m. to virtually watch the hour-long film and participate in a panel discussion hosted by the film's director, Scilla Andreen with me, Ms. Autumn Washington and Ms. Amanda Novak on the panel. In the film you will see interviews with Westgate students, staff and families. We're very excited and hope you can join us. To sign up now, register hereto gain access to the film presentation and follow-on interactive panel discussion.
