National Bullying Prevention Month Activities at Menchville

Dalijah Robinson, Staff writer

The month of October is widely celebrated as National Bullying Prevention month. Many teenagers and children are bullied everyday. We as a community should feel obligated to stop bullying from happening. Bullying can cause a child to shut down, lower their self esteem, and make them feel unsafe. Bullying Prevention Month has helped children feel safer and has helped decrease bullying by 25% when observed in schools.

Menchville and Newport News Public Schools will participate in district-wide Bullying Prevention and Awareness activities during October 17-October 20.
