Kudos to the officers from District E-5 (West Roxbury/Roslindale) and those assigned to the Boston Police School Police Unit who recently stopped by the Casserly House in Roslindale to talk to the kids about the dangers of bullying. During the course of the discussion, officers talked to the kids about issues like cyber bullying, what do to do when a bully is bullying you and what to do when a bully is bullying someone you know.  Said one of the officers involved, “We love interacting with the kids and letting them know– when it comes to an issue like bullying – they’re not alone because we’re here to help them. And days like today give us a chance to share that message with them directly. It’s important for them to know and hear it from us that if they’re having a problem with someone at school or in the neighborhood, they can turn to us for help.”

Casserly House – which was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston – is located at 42 Stellman Road in Roslindale.

The Casserly House provides an After-School program from Monday thru Thursday for 15 neighborhood kids between the 2nd and 5th grade. The house is currently staffed by Sister Nancy Braceland, Meg Klein and Jim McCarthy.
