Kindness Is Key In October, Especially During Bullying Prevention Awareness Month
Blue Shirt Day® World Day of Bullying Prevention™ is just the beginning of a month dedicated to raising awareness about bullying prevention and reinforcing a climate of empathy and kindness in your school and community.
With KIND as your guide, here are some wonderful ways that you could keep compassion and kindness rolling throughout the month of October and beyond. Each week KIND will present a theme for the week so come back every week and participate!
Week of October 10th
Make friends with someone you don’t know at school.
If you've ever been isolated from others at school or you were new at school and it took time to make friends, you know what it feels like to be left out. Or even if you were never isolated, imagine how it would feel.
Make friends with someone at school who you don't know. Invite them to sit at your lunch table or join you in an after school activity. You probably wish someone had done that for you. Be a leader. Take action and don't let anyone at your school feel isolated or alone.
Week of October 17th
STAND UP for Others Week
When you see someone being bullied, be brave and STAND UP for them. Bullies have been known to back off when others stand up for victims. If you don't feel safe get the help of an adult immediately. Be part of the solution -- not the problem!
Show Kindness To Others
Show a fellow student an act of kindness -- no matter how small.
Week of October 24th
Students can participate by creating positive messages on post-its and handing them out to students at school.
Hold a kindness dance at school.
Share with us what you did this to spread kindness
We look forward to hearing about your student led activities during the month as well. The more awareness that is created during the month of October -- and all year round, you are one step closer to putting an end to bullying!
