A new initiative called Find Five Friday is challenging students and staff to reach out to five people they haven’t spoken to in a while or don’t know during the first Friday of every month. Find Five Friday is one of several Garland Independent School District anti-bullying initiatives.
“What we know is that during COVID there are a lot of people who are isolated or lonely or both,” Responsive Services Counselor Rhonda Johnson said. “This will help us be more connected as a campus.”
Johnson said bringing students together will help reduce bullying on campus because students are less likely to bully others if they know them.
