Respect for All Project

The Respect for All Project is coming to Fannin County on February 21, 2015 at Fannin County Middle School Cafeteria from 2:00 pm until 5 pm.  In partnership with SOJOURN, who has been bringing Sources of Strength, a health and wellness program to Fannin County High School for four years, join us for a three-hour workshop for all adult family members and school staff serving ages K-12 to learn how to create a school climate where all students feel safe and welcome.  We will watch the nationally recognized film Let’s Get Real by academy award winning filmmaker Debra Chasnoff that examines a variety of issues that lead to bullying and exclusion, including bias related to learning disabilities, religious differences, socio-economic class, perceived sexual orientation, gender and more.  Through discussion, action planning and interactive activities the Fannin County community will learn about the dynamics of bullying, the impact on children and young people, and how to create a culture where kids stand up for each other and bring respect to all regardless of difference.  As adults, we can prevent and address bullying and exclusion so ALL young people here can have the respect, safety and friendships they need to succeed!
