One of the 2009-2010 Guilford PTA initiatives is to eliminate bullying in our schools. No one approach will solve this problem, but gathering data is critical.
GPTA is very excited to offer parents an opportunity to participate in its Bullying Survey, and you do not need to be a member of GPTA to take the survey, it is open to all GPS parents and/or students.
Please take two minutes of your day to take the GPTA Bullying Survey. The information gathered is anonymous, but powerful!
The survey will only be available times this school year:
Your input will hopefully assist us in changing our schools’ culture for the better.
Feel free to pass this message on to other Guilford parents.
