Upstander of the Week

JETS Tackle Bullying with Lamberts Mill Academy

The New York Jets have teamed up with STOMP Out Bullying and Lamberts Mill Academy to tackle all forms of bullying in our schools. We are committed to raising awareness, providing tools for educators, and preventing bullying for students. The Jets have generously provided our staff with the resources to build a school climate of “upstanders.” An “upstander” is someone who stands up against bullying by helping someone who is being bullied. As educators we strive to use these valuable resources to create meaningful dialog with students, educate students through proven social emotional learning methods, continue to promote character building in our schools, and involve both students and faculty in working together to change school climate. We have been given an additional opportunity to participate in the New York Jets Upstander of the Week Program. This is a school initiative that provides Lamberts Mill Academy with Jets tickets to award one student each week for 16 weeks who demonstrates “upstanding” qualities.
