Expect Respect –
At Arnold Elementary we strive to ensure that all students feel safe and confident on campus. This year, we have introduced Chirp the Bird to help us spread the message that we all need to “Expect Respect”. The hope is that Chirp’s message will help prevent issues of teasing and bullying on campus. Also, Chirp’s message to “Stop-Walk-Talk” provides kids with tools to use if they find themselves in a bullying situation. Please be sure to let us know if your child is experiencing any form of bullying on campus so that we can address it immediately.
