Thank you to the Natick Public Schools and school leaders for hosting last week's program on bullying prevention and online civility. Thank you also to internet safety expert Lynette Owens for sharing her expertise with the community. HERE is a link to the slides from last week.
SPARK Kindness is an independent, neutral, grass roots, town wide organization that does not conduct investigations or get involved in individual cases of bullying with families, schools or other organizations. However, we do offer resources and information to help access support to promote the safety, well being and resilience of all students.
We are continuously gathering and updating lists of helpful resources to help address and prevent bullying. We also urge our members to share resources that have been helpful to them so that we can highlight those to the rest of the community.
Above all - SPARK's mission is to build a "kind, resilient and welcoming community where no one feels alone, bullied, unsupported or unconnected." Individuals experiencing bullying (or incivility) are not alone and we hope the resources below are of assistance.
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving filled with connection and kindness!
The SPARK Team
