Bullying is a form of harassment which
is unacceptable behavior
. Bullying is
defined as harassment verbally,
physically, and/or emotionally which is
repetitive in nature (similar behavior
which occurs more than once), creates
a power imbalance (by size, age, or
numbers), and is intended to hurt the
victim socially, emotionally, or physically.

Students and parents can report
incidences of bullying by completing the
Bullying/Harassment Report Form on
the District website. You can also get to
a report tool by going to "my school
sites" on your tablet or your teacher's
Haiku page. (

that may have otherwise been unavailable to our students and families.

For any PTA to be effective and truly representative of the school, everyone’s participation is essential.
Many parents feel that they cannot participate in PTA because they cannot come to meetings or be at
school during the day. We want everyone to feel that they are part of the Chesak and Martin
community, and PTA is one of the best ways to get involved. Whether you have 30 minutes or a couple
of hours a month, your ideas, your time, your talents and simply your VOICE is truly needed. We can
match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. There are endless possibilities in ways you
can help.

We have a strong community at Chesak and Martin and we are so glad you and your family are a part of it.
We look forward to seeing you really soon!
