October is Bullying Prevention Month

Posted by on Oct 5, 2017 in General Information

WBMS will be recognizing Bullying Prevention Month throughout October.  We have a number of activities planned throughout this month, to help us ‘Take a Stand Against Bullying’.  Our October HERO Friday will focus on kindness, acceptance, awareness, and community.  We will reinforce these themes throughout the month.  We will also have our ‘Lend a Hand, Take a Stand’ pledge activity, where students pledge through handstamps to be an Upstander, not a Bystander.

Finally, we will culminate the month with our Red Ribbon Week activities, ‘Misfit/Mismatched Sock Day’ and other awareness campaigns.  All of these dress up days help bring awareness to bullying prevention and the aforementioned traits of kindness, acceptance, awareness, and community.

Please see below for some additional resources.  We’ll be exploring these, too, and ask that you do with your students, at home.  Together, we are building a community, one where students feel good about being at school, and we will work on this throughout our school year!  Thank you for your participation and support!
