October is Anti-Bullying Month
Posted on 10/12/2016
Every October, schools and organizations across the country join in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. 

The goal: encourage communities and schools to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of bullying on all children of all ages.

Here are some ways to STOMP out bullying
Make friends with someone you don’t know at school

Make friends with someone at school who you don't know. Invite them to sit at your lunch table or join you in an after school activity. You probably wish someone had done that for you.
STAND UP for Others

When you see someone being bullied, be brave and STAND UP for them. Bullies have been known to back off when others stand up for victims.

If you don't feel safe get the help of an adult immediately. Be part of the solution -- not the problem!

Please wear BLUE on Thursday, October 20th to show your support for a bully-free school!
