“Bullying Prevention Is Not Just a Week.” Bullying Prevention Week was created to raise awareness and provide options to respond to bullying. Bullying isn’t something that can be resolved in a week, however. Students and adults need to work on it throughout the school year to be effective. As you have learned, bullying impacts all of us and it takes a commitment from all of us to eliminate bullying. Discourage bullying by telling an adult, offering support to the victim, not re-posting bullying items on social media, and letting other students know that behavior is not acceptable.
