Shaker Road Power of Nice Celebrates Sixth Birthday

In celebrating the sixth birthday of the Shaker Road anti-bullying program known as the Power of Nice, staff and students focused on the themes that provide the type of school culture we seek. 

That culture includes the themes, "We will not bully others," "We will always look to help others," "We know that it is much easier to be kind than it is to be mean," and "We will be 'upstanders' when we see bullying happening...not 'bystanders' who allow bullying to continue." Finally, Shaker Road believes that kindness and respect make the Power of Nice the key ingredient to having the type of school we enjoy.

Those ideas become habits of mind for all students and staff at Shaker Road. It's fair to say that the entire school community feels the same way about these things as many parents communicate with us that they use the same guidelines at home. What we all agree on is that maintaining an environment where key beliefs are shared by assertive children who all take a role in making their school bully-free, everyone wins. Happy Birthday, Power of Nice!
