SCHOOL-WIDE EXPECTATIONS
Bystanders:
Did you know that 85% of the students at JMS are considered bystanders? Bystanders are the people who stand by and watch bullying take place. If you witness a bullying situation, the best thing you can do is to tell the bully to stop. If you don't think you can do that then you can walk away and refuse to watch the bullying and take your friends with you. If yo take the bully's audience away from him/her they are less likely to continue bullying.

At JMS I will ....

Excellence
