Congratulations to sixth-grader Alex P., South Orangetown Middle School’s Upstander for Week 6! An Upstander is a student who speaks up and steps in to help those who are being bullied. His teachers report that Alex is always doing the right thing, whether in the classroom or out at recess. He’s a “true team player who classmates can look up to.”
SOMS is participating in the New York Jets and Stomp Out Bullying’s Upstander of the Week program this year, which aims to reduce and prevent bullying nationwide.
