Gilbert Intermediate School

Bully Prevention Program

Here at Gilbert Intermediate all students are exposed to a Character Traits Educational Network curriculum that focuses on creating a healthy culture, as well as healthy character traits. This year, Gilbert Intermediate is happy to present Epic Entertainment, who will help us kick off October's Anti-bullying month with a fun filled, exciting program that is centered on anti-bullying and character trait behaviors. This is also when students at Gilbert Intermediate receive and sign their anti-bullying hand pledges, that are collected and posted throughout the school as a sign of our year long commitment to our bully prevention program.


Students at Gilbert Intermediate are encouraged to promote Acts of Kindness throughout the year, as well as the character traits and core values that represent our district.  Students will hear anti-bullying and awareness announcements twice weekly, that help to foster a healthy and safe learning environment for all our students.


Gilbert Intermediate offers an after school social club called the F.O.R. Club.  F.O.R. Club, or Friends of Rachel club is open to all students at Gilbert. Members work throughout the year to help create a bully free school through fun activities, posters campaigns and social skill development lessons.  Check out the F.O.R. Club page for more information!!! Here are a few good ways to handle bullying when it occurs and some information about the Anti-Bullying pledge our students sign every year to kick-off October’s Anti-Bullying Awareness Month.
