Be an Upstander! Training for Students

By | May 24, 2022

The Hillcrest PTA Diversity and Equity Committee is excited to offer “Be an Upstander!” to your child/ren. This after-school activity will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 from 4:10 – 5:00 pm. It will be led by PTA Diversity and Equity Committee co-chairs, Taylor Crockett and Mindy Merlo. Unfortunately, transportation will not be available.

The goal of “Be an Upstander” is to support a bully-free and inclusive environment at Hillcrest. Topics covered will include defining and identifying bullying, and ways to safely intervene when bullying is observed. The activity will include discussion about these topics and role-playing to practice skills learned.

If you would like for your child/ren to be a part of these activities, please make sure to sign and return the permission form that will be coming home with your child/ren this week.

Feel free to email either of the Equity leads at or if you have any questions. We can’t wait to work with our upstanding Hedgies!
