Windward Club Talks Upstanding Citizenship

On May 2, Windward's Upstanding Voice Club visited Echo Horizon Elementary School to talk to students about bullying and being an upstander. Led by Phoebe Fingold '21, students Emma Green '21, Maya Ashendouek '22, Sarah Peykar '21, and Aidan Gerst '20 walked 23 Sixth Graders through activities, presentations, and small group discussions. They talked about the motivation behind bullying and relational aggression, scripted them on what to do when you experience or witness unkind behavior, and encouraged them to use the power of being upstanders to keep their communities safe. The Sixth Graders were eager to talk and asked lots of great questions for our student leaders. It was a pleasure to share this message with them.
Windward School is a 7-12, co-educational, independent day school in Los Angeles, California.
