The New York Jets quarterback Bryce Petty and The team from Stomp out Bullying came to our school today.
The New York Jets and STOMP Out Bullying, through their new anti-bullying school recognition program, will honor Redeemer Lutheran School in Glendale, NY. Jets Quarterback Bryce Petty along with STOMP Out Bullying CEO Ross Ellis will recognize Redeemer Lutheran School for their commitment to preventing bullying with a fun and informative presentation.
In 2015 the Jets launched the team’s anti-bullying awareness campaign with STOMP Out Bullying featuring 1,000 free Jets branded STOMP Out Bullying Educator’s Prevention Toolkits for tri-state area schools. All schools that registered for and received the toolkit had the opportunity to submit an essay to the Jets and STOMP Out Bullying about what the school’s year-long bullying prevention plans have been. Redeemer Lutheran School is the fourth of four schools to be chosen to receive visits this spring from the Jets and STOMP Out Bullying.
Through this important campaign, the Jets and STOMP Out Bullying hope to raise awareness about the devastating impact of bullying, and empower educators and teens alike with educational resources to help put an end to bullying. While schools have already been selected for recognition visits, there are a limited number of free Jets branded STOMP Out Bullying Educators’ Prevention Toolkits still available. This toolkit enables educators to create meaningful dialogue, educate students through proven Social Emotional Learning methods, adopt character building in schools and involve both students and faculty in working together to change school climate.
