Beardstown High School Anti-Bullying Month
National Bullying Prevention Month is a nationwide campaign founded in 2006 by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. 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.
Beardstown Middle School students participated in several activities during the month leading up to an annual anti-bullying assembly. Students created a strength chain, writing down one of their strengths, and they joined together with other students making a chain that is displayed in the commons. The chain demonstrates that we are stronger together and together we can end bullying.
