Madison Community of Schools Rally to End Bullying

Elementary, middle and high school student representatives from the Madison Community of schools in Clairemont will come together for the first time in a community-wide rally to end bullying and the use of hurtful language as part of Madison High School’s I Pledge: Hands Across the Community event on Wednesday, January 30 at 9:30a.m. on the Madison campus (4833 Doliva Dr). 

The students will assemble and be educated about the effects of bullying and the use of hurtful language. Each school will present a pledge hand (cut from wood and decorated in the spirit of their school) in a ceremony held in Madison’s Performing Arts Center. The decorated hands will become part of a Hands Across the Community display in Madison’s Performing Arts Center.

Students from Madison High School’s Associated Student Body (ASB), and clubs as diverse as I-Lead (bullying prevention), American Sign Language (ASL), Circle of Friends, Social Justice, Link Crew, Together Loving Christ (TLC), Robotics and AVID will host the younger students and lead them through a series of interactive activities in which they will create I Pledge materials to take back to their school to conduct their own I Pledge campaign.

I Pledge is part of Madison’s Safe Schools Initiative, funded by a grant from the California Department of Education and sponsored by Mission Federal Credit Union and the Madison High School PTSA.
