Bullying concerns all of us, not just those who are bullying and those being bullied: it also affects those who witness bullying and feel unable to do anything. Bullying can happen in secret and a child being bullied can feel unable to tell.
We here at PacWest take bullying seriously and will not take bullying in any form. Any bullying incidents should be brought to the attention of the front desk. We will follow up any concerns expressed by students, parents, and/or teachers.
If you feel that you or a member of the PacWest family is being bullied please fill out our bullying incident report and bring it to the attention of the front desk.
If a dancer feels s/he is being bullied s/he needs to respond immediately. We understand that verbalizing one's feelings can be a scary step, especially when directed at the bully, but we encourage empowerment. Practice saying the following statements so they are at the ready when needed:
"That hurts my feelings."
"You're bullying me."
Many situations between kids can be seen as bullying from one perspective and is harmless teasing from another. This miscommunication can be cleared up if we allow the kids to take the first step. If after this step the situation has not improved then we truly have an incident that warrants direct involvement. The Administrators will contact the families, and the Administrator's decision will be final.
Let's avoid this situation altogether by monitoring our kids' social media use, communicating with them about the dangers of social media, and empowering them with the tools needed to be confident young adults.
Please contact the Front Desk with any questions.
