Message from the Counselor!

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join STOMP Out Bullying in observing 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. We want to do our part in participating and show of support against bullying. I've created a week of challenges beginning October 5, 2020, for us all. Get ready, get set, GO!

Upcoming Events for Next Week for Bullying Prevention Week October 5-October 9

  • Monday- #Blueup wear blue to support World Day of Bully Prevention.
  • Tuesday- Challenge yourself to show kindness to someone new in your class or community. Wednesday- Be the solution. Show how can you support bullying/cyberbullying prevention? Thursday- Share affirmations, send a positive note to friends, family, or someone new.
