OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BULLYING PREVENTION MONTH

OCTOBER IS NATIONAL BULLYING PREVENTION MONTH

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, one student out of every four reports being bullied during the school year. But another statistic confirms that students are more likely to act if they believe they can make a difference. PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center invites you to help celebrate the tenth anniversary of National Bullying Prevention Month by educating and raising awareness of bullying prevention in your school or district.

Participants will communicate to students who are experiencing bullying that they’re not alone and will help to create a safe and supportive school community. They will also be part of a cause that’s uniting the nation. PACER provides creative ideas, resources, and video links, as well as free bookmarks for your elementary or middle- and high-school students. Toolkits and t-shirts to help schools celebrate are also available. Spread the message: “The End of Bullying Begins with Me!”
