What is an Upstander?
What will be happening?
An Upstander, by definition is someone who is honest respectful, and erect. Someone who can stand up to someone who is doing something that is known as NOT OK. 
There will be many events going on at the high school. You can find more information about this on the "Be An Upstander" Twitter and Facebook pages.
​@FLHSUpstanders
  1. Why do this?
    There are issues in FLAHS with common kindness. People notice rude things being said to others, but do not stand up. We are going to instill and promote ways to stand up, so no one is at a loss for words when they do gain the courage.
  2. What is the point?
    There have been groups that have been victimized by physical and verbal action, face to face and on social media. We want to tackle the wrong doing and promote a feeling of being welcome and safe at school and online.
  3. Meetings
    Rm. 540, 7:30 a.m. -Thurs Jan. 5 2017 -Thurs Jan. 19 2017 -Thurs Feb. 2 2017 All are welcome!
How can I be an Upstander?
Have the courage to confront.
​Have the courage to consider.
Being an Upstander is having the courage to confront a single person, an action, or even a group about something that was inappropriate due to the situation. An Upstander will have the "courage to confront" someone with simple phrases like, "Hey, that's not OK". These phrases are not calling someone out, but instead calling someone "up". Calling someone "up" is confronting that they said or did something bad, but that does not make them a bad person. It's a "you are better than that" approach.
