Week of Respect Around Our Schools

Week of Respect Around Our Schools
Posted on 10/17/2022

The Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (P.L.2010, c.122) requires that the week beginning with the first week in October of each year be designated as the Week of Respect in New Jersey. To recognize the importance of social and emotional learning and character education, school districts are required to observe the week by providing age-appropriate instruction focused on preventing harassment, intimidation and bullying. Montclair recognizes the importance of developing and maintaining positive school climates, providing students with a safe and supportive school environment and encouraging academic success along with increased social and emotional competence.

All Montclair schools participated in the Week of Respect with meaningful classroom and school-wide activities that focused on character education. Students decorated walkways with positive chalk messages, “mixed it up” at lunchtime to encourage students who don’t normally sit together to get to know each other, had assemblies and morning meetings highlighting respect. Here is just a glimpse from around the district.
