Stomp Out Bullying

For the second year in a row, Lazar is participating in the program, Stomp Out Bullying, in coordination with the New York Jets. Teachers and staff members are looking for upstanders to help in the fight against bullying. Lazar staff will be nominating students, and each week of the NFL season, they will be choosing one "Upstander of the Week" from that pool of nominations. Each winner will receive three tickets to an upcoming NY Jets game, a parking pass, and a t-shirt.

Lazar believes that being an upstander is contagious, and hopes that these students continue to provide a model that can be followed by the rest of the Lazar student body.  Congratulations to each of the 16 upstanders!
