Themission of the foundation is to help less fortunate children and to support local community agen-cies that work with and benefit children. Friendly competition for charity By MIKE MONOSTRA The Sun Shawnee High School’s colorsmay be blue and white, but schooladministrators said studentshave been seeing green thanks toan anti-violence program.The Green Dot program atShawnee High School was startedfour years ago to help reduce neg-ative actions, whether physical,verbal or emotional. In the pro-gram, violent, abusive or bully-ing-type acts are considered to bered dots. Students are encouragedto get rid of these red dots in theschool culture with positive ac-tions, referred to as green dots.“A red dot could be as simple asa hit or a shove, or it’s using nega-tive words in a post or a text,”Shawnee Principal MatthewCampbell said. “Green dots arebasically when someone steps upor gets involved.”The pilot program began fol-lowing a period of three yearswhere the school saw a jump insuspensions. In the three yearsprior to the start of Green Dot inthe 2011-12 school year, Shawneehad 49 suspensions.Each year, 30 sophomores, jun-iors and seniors are nominated tobe student leaders in the pro-gram. The group is typically bal-anced between the three gradelevels, as well as boys and girls.Staff members and teachers cannominate students, and studentscan also self-nominate. Campbell said the group of 30consists of students from differ-ent backgrounds and socialgroups. To make the programwork successfully, the staff triesto find leaders throughout thestudent body.“We try to identify studentswho have a large influence intheir circles,” Campbell said.After going through trainingduring the summer, the studentleaders act on their roles through-out the school year. Coincidingwith the Lenape School District’smotto of teaching students to beupstanders, these student leadersare encouraged to step in when Blue and whitegoes green Shawnee High School’s Green Dot programhelps reduce violence, bullying incidents  please see SHAWNEE, page 12  2 THE MEDFORD SUN — OCT. 29–NOV. 4, 2014 1 Swift Court RECENTLY SOLD HOMES Sold: $413,750 Real estate tax: $11,812 / 2013 Approximate Square Footage: 2,963This two-story colonial has four bedroomsand two full and one half bathrooms.Features include hardwood flooring, freshneutral paint, updated and expandedkitchen, family room fireplace, EP Henrypaver patio, in-ground pool and pond. 63 N.
