Conner High School is setting the stage to bring about positive changes for students during its Week of Tolerance. Event leader Emily Bell said, “We’re all really excited to see the change that this week will bring. The Leadership League finally wanted to push the issue and do something about bullying, rather than just talking about it and never doing anything. The Week of Tolerance committee has been working really hard for the past three weeks and I can’t wait to see all our hard work pay off.”
A group of students committed to providing avenues of success for all students, the Leadership League recently attended the Anthony Munoz Leadership Conference with over 100 other high schools in the area. At the conference Conner High School’s Leadership League students were paired up with another high school to formulate a plan for awareness of bullying in their school. The group formulated a plan at the event and then came back to school to put the pieces together for a week-long event.
The Week of Tolerance includes a video challenge and an activity of recognizing differences in individuals by participating in a chain reaction event. It also includes taking part in the line game to recognize that all students face similar issues. The week will culminate in a school wide assembly with speakers to discuss anti-bullying strategies and to share and reflect on the Week of Tolerance.
