I am pleased to introduce myself as the new Managing Assistant Principal of the Middle School Alternative Program @ Lombard (MAPAL). It has been a pleasure to serve your child as an instructional leader for the past two weeks. I have observed your child engage in passionate learning with the dedicated staff of MAPAL. Our goal is to continue to provide the intense learning that your child deserves and to prepare your child to re-enter a regular school with a great behavioral attitude as well as additional academic skills to further their knowledge.
October is National Bullying Prevention Month and so we need to need to raise awareness through a wide assortment of activities that range from schools hosting community events that bridge the gap from historical turf wars to educational events that would foster and promote life-longer learners to work together in partnership to take positive action for their communities and each other. More than 50% of students have personally endured or felt some sort of bullying at school. Statistically, 55% of students who experience harassment in school never report the incident to the school. 10% of those who do not report stay quiet because they do not believe that teachers or staff can do anything. Therefore, more than a quarter of students believe that school is a dangerous place to be. WE can transform that! Bullying will not end until we all take an invested role in presenting to students that we care and give them with resources that will help them revolutionize the culture.
