OCTOBER IS BULLY AWARENES MONTH IN SLPS

Did you know that nationwide 1 in 3 students has reported being bullied?  

Bullying is a serious problem, but it can be prevented or stopped when those involved know how to address it. Many adolescents have experienced bullying, whether they were bullied, bullied someone else, or saw someone being bulliedAlthough definitions vary, bullying usually involves an imbalance of power, an intent to hurt, and repetition of the behavior.  Adolescents who bully use their power to control or harm, and those being bullied sometimes feel powerless to defend themselves. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.”

 

October has been officially designated as Bully Awareness Month at Saint Louis Public Schools.  I encourage all schools to participate in the Anti-Bullying Pledge drive organized by the Safety and Risk Management Committee.  Our goal for 2014 is that at least 85% of all students at each school sign the following anti-bullying pledge:

 

“I agree to join together with others to stop bullying in our school community. I know that all members of our school community have the right to be able to enjoy their time at the Saint Louis Public Schools, free from bullying.”

 

The District has also launched its 5th Annual Safety Art Contest which is sponsored by the Saint Louis Public Schools Foundation.  The annual contest has been renamed the “Kevin Coyne Safety Art Contest” in honor of Kevin Coyne, an advocate for school safety, who passed away earlier this year.  This year’s theme is “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully”.  Students will have the opportunity to be recognized and receive awards for the top projects. 

 

Saint Louis Public Schools is committed to a “no tolerance policy” for bullying in any form.  The key to overcoming bullying at school is to do something. Protecting our children is everyone’s responsibility. We must work together to provide a safe and caring environment for all children and combat bullying when it occurs and EVERY TIME it occurs. I encourage all schools, parents, students, teachers and community members to join with us to put a stop to bullying this year!
