Schools Combat Bullying, Ex-NHL Player Comes to Wayne This Week

Here are some of the stories you may find on Wayne Patch this week.

The Wayne Public School District is trying to educate parents and students about how it is combatting bullying and a former professional hockey player will give a talk about the dangers of concussions.

Those are just a few of the things we're working on this week here at Wayne Patch.

  • We’ll tell you more about a new support group for siblings of special needs students. The free program will meet for the first time this month. We’ll find out more about the program from district officials.
  • We’ll let you know more about the community forum on bullying that will be held later this month. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with Naomi Conklin, the district’s anti-bullying coordinator, one of the district’s school resource officers, and several anti-bullying specialists from various district schools.
  • We’ll attend a special workshop given by former NHL player Keith Primeau on Wednesday. Primeau has made it a conceited effort to educate others about the dangers of concussions, especially for young athletes.
  • We’ll talk to the owner of G&S Barber Shop. We’ll ask him what made him go into the hair-cutting business and what challenges there are to owning a business in today’s economic climate.
