DES faculty, students take a stand against bullying
BY ADAM T. SILVA
TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER
DOUGLAS — With all schools in Massachusetts being
required to beef up their stance on bullying, Douglas
Elementary has been working tirelessly to make their school
a safer environment.
“Things got started largely because of the new bullying
laws that mandate that schools have an anti-bullying cur-
riculum,” said Adjustment Councilor Tracy Purvis. “In our
enrichment program on Mondays, we started with the cur-
riculum, which added a lot of movement activities, since it
was kind of dry It was very basic and we filled in the gaps

Some of the lessons and questions asked were, “What is a
bully?” “What is a target?,” bystanders, egger-ons and includ-
ed stories by the Bully Blockers Club.
“We then came up with our own similar club and the kids • DOUGLAS VILLAGE •

Valley Tech has heart
UPTON — On Friday Feb. 3, faculty staff, and students at Blackstone Valley Tech
donned red attire to raise awareness and inspire action as part of 9th Annual
National Go Red for Women Day .
An initiative of the American Heart Association, Go Red for Women Day raises
awareness about heart disease, which kills more women each year than all forms
of cancer combined.
The effort was coordinated by the School Based Health Center (SBHC), the Health
Services program, and the Practical Nursing program led by school nutrition edu-
cator, Martha Leary Pellegrino, RD, LDN, Kathy Ashe, MSN, RN, CNE, Practical
Nursing Director, and Michele Dafonte, School Based Health Center office coordi-
nator. The School Based Health Center at Valley Tech is a program of Milford
Regional Medical Center (MRMC). It is a collaborative effort between the school
and MRMC supporting existing school services to provide convenient and easily
accessible school based health care for students.
The event took place during lunch periods and all staff was invited. Attendees
were encouraged to make healthy choices in their lives. A heart healthy dessert
was given to everyone in attendance and everyone wearing red was given a free “Go
Red” dress pin. Practical Nursing students and instructors conducted blood pres-
sure screenings, and there were raffles for prizes including a gym membership,
pedometers, and more. Health Service students were on hand to discuss the risks of
heart disease and Milford Regional Medical Center donated free giveaways. The
Culinary Arts program offered heart healthy lunch menu options in the Three
Seasons restaurant in support of the event including lime seared fish tacos, turkey
chili, and blackened salmon with pineapple salsa.
“Symptoms of a heart attack are much milder in women,” stated Martha
Pellegrino. “A woman could be having a heart attack, and simply feel shortness of Courtesy photo
