Nicholson is a 'Steps to Respect' School
We believe bullying is unfair and one-sided.  It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out, on purpose.  Cobb County Schools has designed a pamphlet  to help parents and students navigate the unclear roadways of behaviors that can be seen as hurtful teasing or bullying behavior.  Click here to access pamphlet.
