Parents and Community Members: We will need 25 adult participants; a well-rounded group of community members, school staff, and parents. It is an all day commitment 8:00 am-3:30 pm. No prior training required. Please let the counseling department know if you are interested in volunteering or help spread the word to others who may want to volunteer.

Nightmare on Puberty St. Information


Counseling News

At Cunha, we value a positive school culture, allowing all students to express themselves openly and without fear of judgement. We take a strong stance against bullying and have made it our top priority to ensure the safety and well-being of all students. Counselors recently went into all Social Studies classrooms 6-8 to present Anti-Bullying presentations for students. Topics for 6th grade included the definition of bullying, the difference between tattling and telling someone when there's a problem, and "Stop, Walk, and Talk" (our method to alleviate bullying). For the 7th and 8th grade presentations we also included information on diversity and culture, respect, defining LGBT, and being aware of our words and their impact on others. 

Stop: Tell the person to "stop" in a clear loud voice. Make sure they know that you are not joking and that you want the behavior to stop.

Walk: Walk away from the person. Create distance and avoid them wherever possible. If it is in class, ask the teacher to move seats.

Talk: Tell someone, any trusted adult. Let them know what is happening and that you need help.

We encourage students to visit the counseling office if they are feeling uncomfortable, unsafe, or unhappy at school and urge parents to do the same. If you are worried about your child please let us know.
