A Message from Mr. Graffis, Superintendent/Principal

Student conflict is normal; even adults experience conflict in their lives. However, bullying is not “normal” conflict. Bullying behavior generally occurs when the student who is bullying feels safe engaging in power-seeking behavior that is intentionally harmful.


Bullying includes repeated verbal or non-verbal behaviors with the intent to cause physical or emotional/psychological harm. Examples include hitting, kicking, teasing, name-calling, dirty looks, public embarrassment, or extortion. Bullying can also include trash-talking, gossip, spreading rumors, exclusion, or even harassment by phone, e-mail, or social networks such as Facebook & Twitter.

Because bullying differs from “normal” conflict, it requires specific prevention and intervention strategies. When not addressed, bullying can escalate into more aggressive actions toward the victim. It is important to educate all students at the Starbuck School about the differences between “normal” conflict and bullying, and provide strategies to use if a student is the victim of bullying.

At the Starbuck School, each student should feel safe, respected, and valued. We ask that parents insist each child accept responsibility for not only their learning, but their conduct as well. Together, we can provide a positive learning environment where ALL students…..Strive, Achieve, Succeed, and Go Beyond!!!
