Hello Parents and Students, All of the staff at la Mesa are very concerned about keeping our school as safe as it is right now. We are especially concerned about the issue of bullying. We know all of you are aware of la Mesa's Bully Prevention Program. We know you all have heard teachers, counselors and administrators talk about the fact that bullying others is harmful. Many of you have seen the Teen Truth presentation. You know we take it seriously! We would like very much for many of you to fill out a short survey regarding your thoughts about our bully prevention program, which we like to call, "BUDDIES NOT BULLIES". Thank you in advance for your continued support!
No Name Calling Week
No Name-Calling Week is an annual week of educational activities aimed at ending name-calling of all kinds and providing schools with the tools and inspiration to launch an on-going dialogue about ways to eliminate bullying at La Mesa Junior High School. This year we concentrated on spreading the word to end the word. Please go to this website to view the importance of not using the word "retard". http://www.youtube.com/user/EndtheRword.
