Next week will start the Anti-Bullying Week.

As like most of the other special weeks, there will be dress up days. Monday will be “Don’t Sleep on Bullying,” which is where the students go to school in their pajamas. Tuesday will be be a “Team Player,” which is college team day. Wednesday will be “Show Good Character,” where students will dress up their favorite fictional characters. Thursday will be Stand Against Bullying All the Time,” where people dress up in clothes through the decades. Friday will be “Demons Stand Together,” which people dress up in red to show their spirit.

This is done to highlight the need of the prevention of bullying: physical, emotional and cyberbullying. The school wants to make sure that people are and feel safe and happy.

Usually there would be an anti bullying assembly, but because of COVID-19 there will be no assembly. Instead, there will be short videos about anti bullying that will be shared with the students throughout the week. 

“Anti-Bullying Week is important because it is important for students to know the difference between respectful and disrespectful behavior,” Assistant Principal Christy McIntyre said.

McIntyre also thinks that bullying should be punished.

“I think that it depends on the situation, but yes,” she said.  

Another thing that will happen is anti-bullying essays and art contests. The winners of those will be announced Friday.

There will also be skits performed by Derrick Miller’s first hour class.
