Golden Rule Assembly

Golden Rule Assembly

How do we apply our attention to the Golden Rule to reduce “wrecking behavior” (bullying) and support “building behavior” in our classrooms? On October 7th Mountain View Students attended a Golden Rule Assembly to learn how to apply this rule through magic. Magician Steffan Soule focuses on the power of attention and how we can use our attention to apply the Golden Rule in a variety of situations. While demonstrating magic effects that visually relate to the curriculum, Steffan transfers methods for anti-bullying in an exciting, positive and educational assembly.

So what is the Golden Rule?  Simply put it’s “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.”  Sounds simple enough, but how does it play into building a safe and confident classroom?  It’s a principle that if we push to teach our students it can help make bullying disappear from our classrooms, if not our schools.  Bullying is a unique action, there’s no one reason why someone chooses to bully.  The reason for a child to bully other kids can vary for each individual.  What isn’t different though for each individual victim of bullying is the outcome, fear of it happening again.  This disrupts the safety of a classroom and wrecks a student’s “behavior balloon”.  Their attention will be elsewhere and not on what they need to learn. Soule related bullying to a balloon and its enemy– an 18-inch needle. He quickly popped the balloon with the needle. He then produced another balloon and slid the needle through the balloon. As students gasped, he told them they could avoid violence by standing strong. After that, the balloon didn’t pop, but disappeared. “We can make bullying disappear,” Soule said.

At the end of the assembly Steffan talked about how the Golden Rule is inclusive of all different traditions, philosophies and religions. Different versions or formulations of the Golden Rule can be found everywhere: in religious and secular texts, works of art, song lyrics, the words of world leaders and more. Steffan than presented a list for each teacher to hang in their room to remind students to follow the Golden Rule and stop bullying.  A fifth grade student expressed how Soule gave a great message and feels more equipped to handle bullying and follow the Golden Rule.

Back to School Carnival 2016

Mountain View Faculty   Free books from the public library.

 

On Friday, August 26th approximately 1,000 attendees comprised of students from both Mountain View Elementary and Glendale Middle School, along with their families and members of the local community participated in an evening of food, games, and fun on the Mountain View playground. Families enjoyed a pre-prepared dinner catered by the Utah Food Bank.  Afterwards the participants were treated to more than enough sweets, such as fresh snow cones and hand-spun cotton candy, to ensure a sugar rush to last them through the evening.

This event was a wonderful opportunity for families to visit with many of the Mountain View and Glendale teachers along with campus partners to learn more about the upcoming 2016-2017 school year.

“The campus back to school carnival is intended to help build relationships between families and school staff and to also help inform them of the wonderful programs and supports that exist in their community, both here on our campus and in other key community locations in Glendale.” -Keri Taddie, The Community Learning Center Coordinator.

Much of the school staff supported the event and directly contributed to the overall success of the carnival. Faculty and staff could be found in the schoolyard volunteering with activities such as supervising the events and games to making balloon animals, and even going as far as taking turns in the dunk tank, including Principals Ken Limb from Mountain View and Chris Gesteland from Glendale.
