UPCOMING EVENT

2022 Virtual Movie Screening “The Upstanders”

January 10 (8am EST) through January 13, 2022 (11pm EST)
The Parents Council of Washington is pleased to host online viewing of  The Upstanders, an iNDIEFLIX original documentary about resilience and the power of connection to end bullying, addressing the multiple facets of cyber-bullying including bully, victim, bystander, and family member. Remote learning and socializing due to COVID-19 has increased screen time for children while also significantly increasing circumstances of cyber-bullying. Changing human behavior and connection is key to providing bystanders the tools and confidence to “change the narrative” to eradicate cyber-bullying. Register HERE to receive the link to view the documentary, The Upstanders At-Home Discussion Guide, and other online resources. All PCW member school parents, administrators, faculty, and staff are invited.
