Anti-Bullying Speaker Connects to Westfield Intermediate Students

The assemblies took place during New Jersey’s designated “Week of Respect: Anti-Bullying.”

All students in Edison and Roosevelt Intermediate Schools in Westfield attended bullying prevention assemblies this month featuring Cary Trivanovich (pictured), a performing artist who used humor and the motions of a pantomime to engage all 1,548 students in his “Choose Character Over Bullying” message.

According to Roosevelt Assistant Principal, Brian Gechtman, “Cary Trivanovich did an excellent job of relating the painful consequences of physical, social and online cyber bullying. Cary's ‘Three Chair’ Peer Leadership discussion was a great way to show our students the importance of being unselfish and giving. His message was well received by the intermediate school audience and still being talked about today.”  

The assemblies took place during New Jersey’s designated “Week of Respect: Anti-Bullying,” during which many theme-related lessons and activities took place at all levels in the Westfield Public Schools.

How come the Westfield public schools have not summoned Jill Brown to counsel students on bullying?

Hopefully a certain Guidance Teacher payed attention and was not busy commenting in the Patch

Seems to me you are the real bully constantly attacking Ms. Brown- If you have a gripe take it up with her personally - but attacking her on Patch is just cowardice- or jealousy I guess....rumor has it you are a beast
