Anti-Bullying Network to meet in Woodstock

The following press release may be of interest to you, if you are a parent, teacher or young person who has been (or is) affected by bullying.

Woodstock -- The next meeting of the McHenry County Anti-Bullying Network will be held at the Woodstock Library, 414 W. Judd Street, on Saturday, February 19, from 9:30 to 10:30 A.M.

The newly formed organization is devoted to reducing the amount and effects of bullying in schools and among children and teens generally.  The group is open to parents, teachers and other school staff, and others who work with children and youth who are interested in helping to alleviate this problem.

The group is sponsored by Principled Minds, a non-profit organization based in Woodstock that seeks justice and equality for all persons in McHenry County. Principled Minds has made efforts to combat bullying one of its highest priorities and recently was a sponsor of the Don’t Kick the Penguins anti-bullying program at McHenry County College.
