Free food and soft drinks will be provided by Mansfield City Schools’ partners, including:
“This year Mansfield City Schools is taking the lead in getting a positive anti-bullying message out to the community: Stop the Bullying. Hear something? See something? Say something!” said Joetta McCruter-Polk, who served as freshman class parent liaison.
Mansfield City Schools will have a Stop the Bullying pledge certificate for students to sign and anti-bullying tips and information for students and parents. Speakers will include Superintendent Brian Garverick, Freshman Academy Principal Andrew Schiefer and Holly Christie, Ph.D, district director of student support programs.
Three of last year’s freshmen who spoke at a Mansfield Senior High child-abuse prevention rally also will speak.
Ocie Hill is located at 445 Bowman St.
