  • “Wear Your Wings; Earn Your Halo” is our new bullying prevention program. The program is being led and implemented by Mrs. Kovalski and all the teachers at St. Michael Parish School.  Teachers will be using, Class Meetings that Matter, an OLWEUS program tool by Hazelden.  Each grade level will hold a class meeting every two weeks. On the first of the month, as designated on the SMPS calendar, students will wear their “Wear Your Wings; Earn Your Halo” shirts.  The meetings cover areas such as; Building a Positive Classroom Climate, Identifying Feelings, Communications, Peer Relationships, Respecting Differences and Promoting Acceptances. These meetings will consist of students watching videos and being read scenarios to prompt discussions. Students will then participate in the group discussions, role play or many other activities that will correlate with these topics and help students express their thoughts and feelings.
