Bullying is something people are thinking a lot about these days — from legislators in the State House to those in the classroom. Last year a new group formed in Southborough with the mission to “promote and further extend respect in our community.” Called Southborough Project Respect, the group is a collaboration of Southborough Youth and Family Services, the Recreation Department, school representatives, and parents.
Next week Southborough Project Respect will present a workshop for parents on bullying and its effect on children, schools and families. The workshop will take place on Thursday, November 18 at 7:00 pm at the Trottier Middle School library. Here are some more details on the agenda:
Worcester County Assistant District Attorney Julie Lesure will discuss the dynamics of bullying and cyber bullying and ways to keep children safe, along with outlining school programs offered by the District Attorney’s Office, the new legislation, and relevant crimes and legal issues.
