Hunter Elementary

Brownstown, MI

At Hunter Elementary, bullying prevention culture is built into the school community on a daily basis. Throughout the year, there are multiple events that recognize the need to take a stand against bullying and to encourage students to advocate for themselves and others. This philosophy radiates out to parents, community members, and anyone who walks through the doors. The practice of striving year-round to practice creating a kinder, more inclusive, and accepting environment is implemented in a multitude of ways. They range from whole school incentives, classroom challenges, individual student goals, education for staff, and community awareness. There is a monthly focus trait discussed during our school-wide assembly to continue to spread awareness to be better citizens. National Bullying Prevention Month is celebrated throughout October with weekly activities and lessons that teach students the importance of ending bullying and how to be an upstander. Every staff and student sign a pledge which in turn gets an orange bracelet. Our halls are filled with bullying prevention banners and orange is worn on Unity Day. In April, our school participated in the virtual RUN WALK ROLL; Moving toward a world without bullying. There is a lot of pride on making a difference in this large cause and everyone involved hopes to continue doing this in years to come. At Hunter the belief is, WE CAN DO ANYTHING! Ask anyone, "Hunter is just a great place to be!" #ProudHunterHornets

2022 Unity Award Acceptance

Why are you personally passionate about addressing bullying and promoting inclusion?

I am personally passionate about addressing bullying prevention because this is something that doesn't just affect our students, this is something that unfortunately just happens in life. It is our job as educators to educate young minds on the importance of kindness, inclusion, and overall respect for one another. If we can do this, the world will be a better place for all of us! Christina David!

Why is it important to create a world without bullying?

It is important to create a world without bullying because bullying can lead to so many negative outcomes. Bullying doesn't just happen to young people, this is something that impacts adults in every aspect of life which can create life-long issues and have negative impacts on people's lives. We all need to learn to stand united to promote kindness! - Christina David
