When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time.   Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy.

Eastbrook Panthers Travel the Globe

As budgets everywhere tighten it has become increasingly difficult to travel.  In an effort to help students travel the world, Google has teamed with people around the globe to create virtual field trips for students at zero cost.  The program is titled Google Expeditions.

 

Eastbrook Schools was able to purchase a Google Expedition set with grant money from a local foundation.  Students and teachers have already traveled to Rio De Janeiro, Berno Rainforest, Greenland, Vietnam, Europe, Canada, Jerusalem, Mars, and more.  Check out the video below for more information about how Eastbrook is taking students around the world.

 

Eastbrook Receives Lilly Endowment Grant

Eastbrook Community Schools Corporation received a $158,700.00 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. as part of the Endowment’s Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 students. The district was one of 52 public and five charter schools selected to implement plans. Eastbrook worked with the four other Grant County schools in a collaborative effort to implement plans to meet the complex academic, college, career and social and emotional needs of our students. The collaborative effort of the county schools was spearheaded by Project Leadership of Grant County in conjunction with Family Services.

Eastbrook continues to work with the other county schools, Project Leadership and Family Services to plan and provide students with a more comprehensive counseling model to meet the needs of our students. Eastbrook will specifically focus on strategies to:

1.  Develop a comprehensive K-12 social and emotional system of support for
students.
2.  Develop a comprehensive K-12 college and career readiness program that
significantly increases postsecondary readiness and college and career success of our students.

Over 254 school corporations and charter schools submitted implementation grant proposals totaling nearly $90 million.
