October is National Bullying Prevention month! As this was initiated by PACER in 2006, it’s an amazing time for schools and organizations to help raise awareness about bullying. By raising awareness and talking to students, we can make an impact. Its a way to reach out to communities, schools, and families all over the world to educate about the need to keep kids safe in school. One event that QLS had to raise awareness about bullying was the Cassie McQuillen concert. As she talked about personal bullying situations, it impacted and taught students how bullying harms people more than you think it does. By discussing bullying, students at our school will become more aware about what’s going on and that bully behavior is hurtful and unacceptable. Bullying is serious and comes in many forms. From name calling, being made fun of, physically harmed, those who are picked on by bullies are scared and emotionally damaged to go to school. Bullying is unacceptable and schools all around try to make an effort to raise awareness among students. Quarry Lane held a concert in which people had fun as well as learned more about bullying and its consequences.
