Bully Prevention Month at the Elementary

The final day of October--where has the time gone? For Bully Prevention month, elementary students learned the following things in guidance class:
HOW TO RECOGNIZE BULLYING WHEN/IF THEY SEE IT. Here are the guidelines:
1. Negative actions on the part of one or more persons.
2. The negative action occurs repeatedly over time.
3. There is an imbalance of power and the individual has difficulty defending himself/herself.
(To be classified as bullying an issue must meet ALL three of these criteria.)
REPORTING BULLYING
Report bullying to an adult if you see it happen. If it continues after you reported, tell ANOTHER ADULT. Keep telling until it stops!
REFUSE BULLYING
When you refuse bullying, you stand up tall, face the person, and use a strong, respectful voice. Say, "Stop it, that's bullying!" (This was practiced in class.)
BYSTANDER
Students learned ways to support the person being bullied such as: go with the person to report bullying, include/invite that person to play, distract the bully or get the person targeted away from the situation, don't join in or laugh if you see bullying happening, and tell the bully to stop if you can and feel safe. They also learned that if you report bullying you are part of the solution!

Here are a few of the posters students made to hang at West Monona Elementary.
