October is National Bullying Prevention Month

For Immediate Release:

The PTA Council of Fairfield and The Kindness Solution are promoting National Bullying Prevention Month in  the Fairfield Public Schools

Throughout the month of October, the Fairfield PTA Council Kindness Committee is requesting all Fairfield Public School PTA platforms: websites, Facebook pages, and Tweets to include any or all of 3 messages with a hyperlink to IM IN!

All PTA Members, families and students are asked to post the image as a personal profile on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, LinkedIn pages and any other social media platform they’d like to share this message.

Participants are asked to be sure to CLICK  IM IN! to show their support and be counted as a school or family who stands behind this important message.   

Kindness Evolution is tracking, in real-time, all the individuals, organizations and companies that are standing for the eradication of bullying. The idea is that “we are stronger together and through collaboration will raise awareness in Fairfield and beyond and have greater social impact.” Please share this message and encourage friends and colleagues near and far to join in solidarity by clicking IM IN.

Here are some great ideas and resources to get going. It’s the mission of the The PTA Council of Fairfield and The Kindness Solution to spread #KindnessMatters throughout Fairfield, the state of CT, and throughout the country all year long.

The Fairfield PTA Council (PTAC) is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit association that prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education. PTAC strives to unify the 18 separate PTA school units in our town to best understand and meet their needs.  Our community is comprised of 11 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 3 high schools and an early childhood center. PTAC’s mission is to be a support system for the greater community. We are committed to provide unified community communication, act as an educational advocate support system, and build bridges amongst the people and its organizations. The Fairfield PTAC, Fairfield PTA organizations, Fairfield Public Schools administration, Board of Education, Board of Finance, Board of Selectmen, RTM, Public Safety entities, and others all come together to represent one voice for every child, for the greater good.

The Kindness Solution is a community movement and platform that believes that kindness is the solution to every challenge we face individually and collectively.  We share ideas and resources on how to proactively look for ways to uplift and encourage each other at home, school, online, and in our workplaces and communities.

By teaching Kindness Matters in our schools, we are helping our children build a foundational skill that will enrich not only their own lives, but make a positive impact on their communities and the world. When we encourage children to accept and support each other, they experience firsthand the profound power and impact of their thoughts, words, and actions. In this way, we create an environment based on inclusion and acceptance where children feel inspired to express themselves and live authentically. By teaching age appropriate themes of self-love, empathy, and cooperation throughout Elementary, Middle, and High School, our goal is to send our children into the world with the operating principle of looking at every aspect of their lives through the lens of kindness.
