Bullying, cyberbullying workshop planned for Monday

Staff Reports • Updated Mar 23, 2017 at 12:00 PM

The Lebanon Special School District Family Resource Center will partner with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office on Monday to hold a workshop on bullying, cyberbullying, social media use and the dangers for students in fifth grade and older and their parents. 

Lt. Scott Moore, who heads up the school resource officer program, will facilitate the workshop called “Step Up So Others Don’t Get Stepped On.”

Last summer, Moore and the sheriff’s office held the first Camp Victory. The program was a success and made national news on CBS. 

“The workshop with LSSD is a chance to give students and their parents an overview of the camp – enough to help them work through problems students face in the classroom, life and on social media,” Moore said. “Some students won’t be able to attend the summer camp, so we wanted to offer information to a larger range of kids and include their parents. Of course, we will let attendees know more about dates and hours of the extended summer program, too.”

Family Resource Center coordinator Beth Petty said Moore has been a longtime friend to LSSD and facilitated several workshops in his work with school resource officers. 

The workshop, snacks and childcare will be free. The meeting will be from 6-8:30 p.m. in the Castle Heights Elementary School library at 1007 N. Castle Heights Ave. in Lebanon.
