Students share experiences with bullying at CEC24 meeting


This month’s Community Education Council (CEC) District 24 meeting was enlightening.

Hosted at PS/IS 49, the meeting focused on teen depression, suicide, bullying, unity and belonging – issues that every parent and student think about.

Students shared their experiences on teen depressing and bullying, what it was like to either go through it personally or have a friend who was contemplating suicide.

They spoke about what parents should look out for when teens are showing signs of depression.

They presented in front of a large crowd of administrators, elected officials, the Superintendent of District and even media, which deserves a round of applause and our heartfelt thanks.

CEC24 is also entering its Phase 2 of “Nominate An Outstanding Staff Member” and is still accepting nominations. Anyone who is a staff member in a District 24 school can be nominated.

Nominations close on December 15:

The next meeting is set for December 19. Look out for agenda details!
