S.T.A.T. MEMBERS RECEIVE CONGRESSIONAL CERTIFICATES

Posted October 23 at 10:41am

Minisink Valley High School students are putting an end to bullying by using peer pressure in a positive way.  S.T.A.T. (Students Taking Action Together) is a quick-action intervention designed to reduce bullying and to teach students to treat each other with respect. The formula is simple: place 2 STAT members and 1 bully in a room together with no adult.  The result is an agreement to stop the bullying.   On October 7, 2014, U.S. Representative Maloney’s Deputy District Director, Genevieve Kessler, met with S.T.A.T. to learn how and why it works when other anti-bullying programs have limited effectiveness.  Ms. Kessler had been one of the organizers of the anti-bullying summit in March 2014. In an email to Carol Freeman, school psychologist and creator of S.T.A.T., Ms. Kessler wrote “STAT was all I could talk about yesterday when I got back to the office” and continued, “I am so impressed by your students and by the program you have put together”.   

Ms. Kessler was so impressed that she arranged for Congressional Certificates to be issued to each student in S.T.A.T. 

In addition to meeting with a bully, S.T.A.T. has met with 5th grade classes, 9th grade social studies classes, and has helped to train a middle school S.T.A.T. group.  S.T.A.T. is collaborating with the Bus Safety Director to try to improve the safety and comfort of the bus ride for all students. Pictured with this year's S.T.A.T. team is advisor Mrs. Freeman and high school principal, Mr. Hauck.
