Warsaw Christian School staff and students have soared into the school year with a strong focus on school safety. The letter S in our WCS SOAR Eagle Pledge stands for safety. The pledge states that we will make good choices about our safety and the safety of others. Proverbs 4:10-27 provides great guidance on the importance of following God’s instructions in order to gain wisdom and righteousness.
During the month of August, we practiced a variety school safety drills as well as learning the importance of treating others with safety.
Teachers and students have also been trained to recognize and respond to bullying through the lens of God’s word.
The students are learning the importance of being an upstander rather than a bystander. There are four steps that we have taught our students in regards to responding to bullying that will help them as they navigate this world: (1) If you see something, say something (2) Know you are special to God (3) Respond in love (4) Look for ways to include others.
A good article written by Neil Hardin includes these points and can be found here: What does the Bible teach us about bullying? Take time to read it for yourself and share with those you mentor.
Let’s SOAR together as upstanders in our homes, workplaces, and community.
