What you should know!

  • Bullying is not okay!
  • We have a right to feel safe, and not be hit or teased.
  • Be treated fairly, and with respect.
  • Be accepted for who we are.
  • Be free of negative peer pressure.

What should I do if my friend or I are being bulling?

  • If you are bullied at school, tell your teacher, school counselor, or principal. Telling is not tattling.
  • Try not to show anger or fear. Students who bully like to see that they can upset you.
  • Most important don’t fight back. Calmly tell the person to stop, and or say nothing and then walk away.
  • If you are nervous about talking with an adult at school, ask a friend or a parent to go with you.

How should you deal with someone who is bullying you?

  • Don’t show emotions and don’t get physical.
  • Act confidently and tell the them to STOP!
  • Walk away quickly and calmly.
  • Tell an adult immediately.
