Milton picnic to kick off anti-bullying campaign
MILTON—The Milton Youth Coalition is hosting a community picnic at Friday evening at Northside Intermediate School to kick off a citywide anti-bullying campaign this school year.
The picnic starts at 6 p.m. at the school at 159 Northside Drive, Milton. The first 125 students at the event get a piece of pizza, chips and a cookie.
The event includes a short presentation by Northside Intermediate School Principal Sarah Stuckey on the negative impact of bullying. The picnic also includes a dance, games and a raffle drawing for anti-bullying t-shirts and Piggly Wiggly gift cards.
It’s part of the Milton Youth Coalition’s new anti-bullying campaign: “Live the Milton way: Safe in our schools. Safe in our community. No bullying.”
Other anti-bullying programs through the campaign include:
--“Lunch With A Cop” program in which a Milton police officer will have lunch with a classroom at Northside Intermediate School to talk to students about bullying.
--Bully Patrol: Milton High School students who monitor areas around Milton Middle School and Northside intermediate to watch for before and after-school bullying. --Bully Alert: an anonymous online bullying complaint form available on the Milton Police Department’s page on the city of Milton website, ci.milton.wi.us.
