No Bullying at Irwin County Elementary School
Irwin County Elementary School 4th and 5th Grade students learn about bullying on Tuesday, October 8th. Percey Chastang from South Health District spoke to the students about the different types of bullying, why people bully, and ways to stop bullying. Mr. Chastang told the students the best way to stop bullying is to tell a teacher or another adult about it and by not letting your friends or relative be bullied. The students should support the one that is bullied and not laugh when someone bullies. We all can stand up to stop bullying now. The Anti-Bullying Program was sponsored by Irwin County Family Connection, South Health District, and Irwin County Elementary School.

As January is Volunteer Appreciation Month, GCHS wanted to get a jumpstart on identifying and thanking the volunteers who serve the students so faithfully. For December, we want to focus attention on the role of the mentor at the high school. Mentors work with students both academically and socially, helping the students to work through problems and realize their potential.
