Kindness Across the Prairie In an effort to prevent bullying and create a safe and nurturing environment for all GPISD students, the following four programs are used throughout our district: 1. Handprints on Hearts (HOH) 2. Capturing Kids’ Hearts 3. Teen Leadership 4. Rachel’s Challenge
Kindness Across the Prairie Hand Prints on Hearts - Is a mentoring program for our students Capturing Kids’ Hearts - We aim to capture kids’ hearts while engaging their minds Teen Leadership – Is a course that teaches students to take responsibility, express themselves, and appropriately handle problems and decisions when they arise Rachel’s Challenge – Is a program that inspires students to treat others with compassion and to start a "chain reaction" of kindness
An Inspirational Legacy
Truman is a Rachel’s Challenge Campus.
Bullying Truman has a ZERO tolerance for bullying Truman has a Bully Locker for students to anonymously report bullying Bullying – Is to engage in written or verbal expression or physical conduct that the school board or designee determines will have the effect of physically harming a student, damaging a student’s property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of harm Cyberbullying – Is the use of any electronic communication device to engage in bullying or intimidation
