The week of February 21-24th. Spring Lake Elementary celebrated their second annual bullying awareness week. The week was kicked off with an assembly put on by “Be The Change” from Payson High School. They discussed that even though everyone is different there are many things that we can all have in common. Interest or hobbies or which animal we like. A skit was shown of what happens when we bully and how we can make it better.  Students signed posters pledging not to be a bully at the end of the assembly.  The PTA sponsored several dress up days.
