Tri-Valley Rallies Against Bullying

  • On Wednesday, October 29, 2014, the entire Tri Valley School District gathered together for the Rally Against Bullying. The Kindergarten through 8th grade students met in the gym to listen to guest speakers, music by the TV Pep band and cheers by the TV Cheerleaders. Barbara Durbak from Sullivan County Cares, Sullivan County Legislator Kitty Vetter and Allison Horan, a representative from Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther’s office, spoke to encourage the students to stand up to bullying. “If it’s mean, intervene” was the message of the day. Grades 9 through 12 students listened to a presentation by District Attorney Jim Farrell. Board of Education members and a representation from the Sullivan County Human Rights Commission joined in the two events. Implementing the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is a long-term commitment to making Tri-Valley a safer, more positive place to be.
