    Olweus Overview


    Wednesday mornings at Charlestown Elementary School are special days. Each classroom starts their day with a class wide meeting with an emphasis on proactively teaching pro-social skills, such as treating all others with respect, working with others, understanding differences, etc. This is also a time for a classroom to problem solve any situations that may be occurring throughout the school day. These problems can be shared with the whole group or students can also submit a concern in their classroom meeting box and remain anonymous. Some examples may be how to work in a science group together, play soccer out at recess, share a good friend with others.  The students share with each other their suggestions on how to solve the situations.
