On Aug. 24, Girl Scouts of Colorado trained the faculty and staff of Pagosa Springs High School to facilitate the Power Up anti-bullying program.
Every teacher in the high school participated in the workshop, including the principal, David Hamilton.
On the first day of school, the following week, 480 students participated in Power Up and learned about the three kinds of bullying and how to intervene when they see something wrong.
This was the first time in Colorado that Power Up has been taught to an entire student body.
Hamilton was excited about the outcome of the training and is planning that all future freshmen be required to participate in Power Up as part of their freshmen orientation.
