National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month
October is National Bullying Prevention Month!
Every October, schools across the country observe National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage schools, communities and organizations to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying and put an end to hatred and racism by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of all forms of bullying on all children of all ages. Remember, there is a difference between BULLYING and TEASING or CONFLICT. Be a leader, and if you see something, say something!
WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEAN FOR YOU?

BE AN UPSTANDING COYOTE
Bullying is defined as an intentional act that causes harm to others. Bullying can be physical, verbal, social (gossip, excluding others), or cyber (electronically), and it is a very serious topic that we revisit each year. If you SEE something SAY something! Be an upstanding citizen and be sure to report any incidents of bullying or peer pressure to a trusted adult. To report anonymously, you can leave a tip on "Fortify FL" at the following link:
Remember, always be kind for others may be fighting a battle that you know nothing about. There is a NO TOLERANCE policy when it comes to bullying, harassment, or peer pressure!
