Sand Creek Welcomes Sweethearts and Heroes Anti-Bullying Academy

The Sweethearts and Heroes Academy rolled into Sand Creek Middle School this week helping to educate students and staff about the impact bullying has on our schools.

Presenters Tom Murphy and Rick Yarosh brought their powerful program to students in grades 5-8 during assemblies and classroom debriefing sessions.

Sweethearts and Heroes is an organization that believes in educating society about the impact that bullying has on all of our schools, our neighborhoods, and individuals. Through knowledge and communication, the two are committed to bringing their message to individual communities -- not only to help the victims, but especially to empower bystanders to make a difference.

"We all have the potential to be someone’s hero," they told the Sand Creek community during their visit.

The Sweetheart and Heroes Academy will continue when several Sand Creek staff wll attend a turnkey workshop Friday, followed up with a separate presentation as part of staff development day October 11th.
