National Bullying Prevention Center - Promotional Materials

Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month and this year is the 10th anniversary of its initiation?

This year's theme is "The End of Bullying Begins with Me!" This theme encourages kids not to be bystanders because when you are a bystander, whether you know it or not, you are sending a message to the bully that the bully's behavior is acceptable – when it's not!

Here are some tips to help avoid becoming a bystander:
- Don't laugh
- Don't encourage the bully in any way
- Stay at a safe distance and help the target get away
- Don't become an "audience" for the bully
- Help the victim in any way you can
- Support the victim in private
- Include the victim in some of your activities
- If you notice someone being isolated from others, invite them to join you
- TELL AN ADULT

Students frequently share what our classes mean to them. Recently, a 5th grader gave a note to one of our educators that read:

"Thank you for teaching Positive Action. It helps me a lot. I have a type of anxiety. Thank you for helping me."
