  • October is Bully Prevention Month. Standing up to bullies is EVERYONE’S responsibility — and NOW is the time to take that stand.  This week, TA teachers will reading an “anti-bully pledge” in TA.  All students who wish to join together in supporting this pledge will receive a “hand” to sign and place on the bully prevention board.  If we all join our “hands” together — those bullies won’t “stand” a chance. So take a stand, and sign a hand!
