The foundation has given Linden Avenue Middle School a $700 mini-grant to help promote the school’s efforts to stop bullying. The LAMS ACT PAC has already had surprising success in helping to pass the statewide Dignity for All Students Act.
The club’s aim is the same as in the past: to work with students, teachers, administrators and parents to create a bully-free environment by educating students and giving them strategies to deal with the problem.
The grant will be used to help the club to get its message out earlier than in the past. Until now, efforts at the beginning of each school calendar year have been delayed while students raised money through fund-raisers.
