Monday, April 19 2010 10:51

On Thursday, April 29 (9:35 am), all Junior High students will be attending a special presentation on bullying in the gymnasium at Washington Junior High.  Parents are invited to attend as well.  WJH and QSP, Inc. will host Mark Brown (nationally acclaimed youth speaker) to present “Words Count.  The program talks about schoolyard bullying, cyber-bullying and the importance of tolerance and respect.   Brown encourages students to take a look at roles (bully/victim/bystander) and promotes them to build respect in their school and community.

Brown’s Emmy-nominated presentation “Words Count,” is part of a national outreach program against bullying, sponsored by QSP, Inc., the educational fundraising arm of Time, Inc.  QSP has raised close to $3 billion for school and youth groups in the United States and Canada since it was founded in 1964.  The company supports numerous educational activities that go beyond fundraising- like this speaker program featuring Mark Brown.


 

"This gentleman should be cloned and sent to every school in the United States. Who knows what he may have actually changed for the future of Fulton. In the words of several kids, that was the 'BEST assembly' they've ever had."
A parent Newport Beach, CA

"You have changed my life forever. Thank you for planting the seed at our school. I hope it grows. Mr. Brown, I will never forget you."
A student Glenbrook Middle School, Longmeadow, MA

Thanks to the Washington County Riverboat Foundation, five more of the Washington Community Schools District's buses were fitted with a digital camera system. The system is manufactured by Radio Engineering Industries, of Omaha, NE.

The system provides three interior camera views: front, rear, and the entrance door. An exterior camera is mounted on the side of the bus to catch stop arm violators. Every camera has infra-red technology for low light conditions, and all three interior cameras are equipped with microphones to record sound.
