This past fall, William Floyd Middle School and Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary School participated in the New York Jets “Upstander of the Week” program, an anti-bullying initiative that rewards students who display outstanding qualities and characteristics such as being kind and helping others. Students selected for this honor received a New York Jets “Tackle Bullying” shirt, a bumper sticker and tickets to a New York Jets home game. The program was sponsored by the Jets, the anti-bullying organization “Stomp Out Bullying” and the New York Municipal Credit Bullying.
