BULLY PREVENTION

  • We at Folwell Elementary School take bullying very seriously.  As a part of our school-wide character education program, this will be at the forefront of many topics that we discuss with our students.  Our school counselor has many activities and initiatives that provide students with opportunities to celebrate community and family.  Please help us educate our children.  Together, we can make a difference.  We will be a bully-free school. Below you will find information pertaining to the topic of bullying.
