School-wide Commitment Reduces Bullying by 50%

According to National Youth Violence Prevention, a school-wide commitment to Bullying Prevention reduces the act of bullying by 50%.  It is very encouraging to learn that all the efforts, by many organizations and concerned citizens, have been making an impact on our youth!

There are a variety of classroom activities that encourage participation in the bullying prevention movement.  One activity, targeted towards elementary and middle school students, encourages teachers to involve students in creating classroom rules for bullying.  Once the rules are established, each child signs a petition.  PacerKidsAgainstBullying.org has a contract that can be printed out at  http://www.pacer.org/bullying/pdf/ele-starting-the-discussion-files/KABPledge.pdf.  It is a great idea to have these contracts signed by a parent or guardian, thus enabling communication at home.

Having a classroom or school-wide poster contest is another great idea.  The winner of the contest receives a small prize or has their poster displayed in the school’s office.  Hanging these posters throughout the school not only promotes awareness, but allows children to showcase their creativity.

There are many free online games and educational materials available.  PacerKidsAgainstBullying.org has designed their website specifically for younger students.   Students can play games, watch videos or participate in polls.  PacerTeensAgainstBullying.org is also an interactive website for high school aged students.

RememberMe-Gifts.com and RememberMe-Awareness.com continues to accept donations for our Bullying Prevention campaign.  It is our desire to supply elementary schools with Clever Catch (R) Bullying Balls.  For more information, please click here.
