Many middle school and high school students who reside in Greenburgh and the villages have been the victim of bullying, harassment and bias. This is not a local problem-- it's a national problem.
Mike Zeldes has chaired a Task Force assisting irvington's  Middle School and High Scool Principals in developing a robust plan to combat harassment, bullying and bias  in the community. On Tuesday, February 1st there will be a Town Hall meeting that will include the premiere of a wonderful 17 minute film created by students at the HS which candidly and vividly captures the issue from the student's perspective. The creation of this film followed a new awareness of issues of harassment, bullying and bias on campus due in large part to an anonymous "climate" survey taken by students in September which allowed them to explain harassment and bias that either they have witnessed or experienced while attending the HS. The results were eye opening to say the least. The  Student made film premiere will be a part of an overall introduction by the principals  of a plan they hope to fully implement over the next several years and a dialogue with the community at large about this exciting endeavor.  
The video will be shown on Tuesday, Feb 1st at 7:30 PM at the charming Irvington Town Hall THeatre on Main Street.  If you know of any student who has been victimized by bullying (or their parents) please encourage them to attend.
Would be interested in your feedback on this subject.
on another subject of interest to students---next meeting of the STUDENT NEWS NETWORK (students who will produce their own student run news program on public access TV---MONDAY, January 31st at 4:15 PM to 5:15 PM at Greenburgh Town Hall.
