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.

The Impact of Bullying continued…

Bullying also impacts student sense of well-being, such as:

  •        Self-isolation
  •        Increased aggression
  •        Self-harm and suicidal ideation
  •        Feeling of alienation at school
  •        Fear of other students
  •        Retaliation

“The End of Bullying Begins with You.” Bullying prevention takes a united effort of students and adults. It also takes an individual effort. It is about each person taking responsibility. The end of bullying begins with the principal, the end of bullying begins with teachers, the end of bullying begins with ALL school personnel, and the end of bullying also begins with you—with each student being willing to say that bullying will not be accepted and that everyone has a right to be safe at school.
