POST DRILL VIDEO: SHERIFF IVY
HOMEROOM: AUGUST 16TH
INTENT. Today our HOMEROOM is to look at the WESTSHORE NEWS, followed by a discussion on "Bullying," and because of this week's DRILL, we are required to watch Brevard County Sheriff & BPS VIDEO on safety & security in the schools. These will certainly fill in the 30 minutes for HOMEROOM.
REALITY: We started on time, introduced our two new students from Edgewood, then watched WS News [5:33]. We went immediately into Wayne Ivy's security video [8:33] because of our two drills this week. We began the discussion on "bullying," but got through just a bit before the bell.
CELEBRITIES AGAINST BULLYING
HOMEROOM: AUGUST 23rd
INTENT. Today our (1) HOMEROOM is to look at the WESTSHORE NEWS, followed by (2) inform our homeroom that next homeroom we will vote on our selection of ambassador and co-ambassador; also, (3) a discussion on "Bullying" again, paying particular attention which SRO Butler asked us to cover which involves some groups of 8th graders potentially bullying 7th graders in the cafeteria and outside area. In addition, we will (4) begin working on our flag and slogans, class saying, symbols etc [note our 7th grade efforts above].
REALITY: We started off with some chaos, and asking students to put away their cell phones and listen up. With that said, our homeroom watched the WCTZ News show for today which was short in nature and time. I went ahead and relayed Officer Butler's concern about 8th graders and 7th graders in regards to "bullying." With time remaining, Anjani facilitated our efforts in the flag, symbols, motto, etc. We will review them carefully next Friday. In addition, next week we mentioned that if anyone is interested in running for 8th grade ambassador, they are to give a 2-3 minute speech as to why. And, that was just about it for today.
