October is National Bullying Prevention Month

iStock Illustration of Student Being BulliedDid you know that more than 1 out of every 5 students report being bullied? It is statistics like these that make National Bullying Prevention Month, sponsored by PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center, so important. This nationwide campaign was founded in 2006. The campaign is held during the month of October and unites communities around the world to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. This campaign has grown from an initial week-long event to a worldwide effort with thousands of individuals participating in multiple activities throughout October. Hundreds of schools, major corporations, and many celebrities have joined the movement. Take action and show that you care about kids being safe at school, while online, and in the community. The SMUHSD has strict policies about any type of bullying. We ask that you join the SMUHSD in recognizing this national issue and help us prevent the devastating effects of bullying.
