On, February 12, 2015, Glenwood Middle School is participating in No One Eats Alone Promise Day, an initiative of Sandy Hook Promise (www.sandyhookpromise.org).
No One Eats Alone is a simple, yet powerful activity that reduces social isolation. Social isolation is the feeling of being left out, lonely, and treated like you are invisible. At every school and in every community there are children who feel like they have no friends and suffer quietly through each day, especially at lunchtime and other moments where friends gather. Young people who are isolated can become victims of bullying, violence, and/or depression. As a result, many further pull away from society, struggle with learning and social development, and/or choose to hurt themselves or others.
Glenwood Middle School is taking an important step today to reduce social isolation through implementing simple, yet incredibly powerful actions with students, educators, and school staff during the day to make sure no one eats alone.
