The faculty and staff of Clover Middle School are committed to making our school a safe and caring place for all students. We are committed to the belief that learning occurs best in an atmosphere of cooperation and respect. In order to fulfill our mission to provide a quality education to our students in an environment conducive to learning, we do not tolerate bullying, harassment, or intimidation.
Our students learn:
- The difference between a bullying problem and a conflict problem.
- Students learn that conflicts involve a problem or disagreement between people with equal power and are a normal part of life. However, bullying is a repeated behavior with the intent to hurt someone physically, emotionally, or socially and usually has an imbalance of power.
- How to respond to and report bullying when it occurs.
- Friendship and interpersonal skills that reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim to bullying.
- How to use positive character traits such as honesty, responsibility, respect, and caring as a guide for behavior.
Although the faculty and staff of CMS work diligently to create a safe and supportive environment at school, they realize that often bullying can occur outside of the school day. Therefore, CMS administrators have the right to get involved with cases involving off campus bullying if it causes disruption in or interference with, the orderly operation of school.
Parent involvement is an important part of creating and maintaining a safe and caring school environment. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to contact a CMS administrator or guidance counselor. Together, we can work to make Clover Middle School a warm, safe, and inviting place for students.
