October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Schools, organizations, and communities are raising awareness of bullying prevention and teaching students how to respond effectively to bullying situations. Stay tuned to morning announcements and listen for ways to help eliminate bullying. Information is provided by Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center and the Center for Disease Control.

Telling vs. Tattling:

There is a difference between telling and tattling. A general guideline is “telling is done to protect yourself or another student from harm. Tattling is done to get the person in trouble. It’s okay to tell an adult when you see bullying!
