As part of National Bullying Prevention Month, students in the Southside ISD will participate in Unity Day on Wednesday, October 21. It’s part of a national effort to inspire students for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Students from our elementary campuses to the high school will hold events as an effort to create a world without bullying.
According to Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center, every October, individuals from across the nation—and around the world—unite with the powerful message that bullying should never be a part of childhood.
The campaign is a catalyst for:
- Involving a nation to take action at the local level to create safe and supportive schools
- Offering information and education about how everyone can prevent bullying
- Providing a platform to hold school events
- Sharing information about the issue through news media, social media, and videos
- Talking with education and public policy leaders about their roles in bullying prevention
- Promoting dialogue between educators, parents, and students on their roles in addressing and preventing bullying
- Encouraging organizations to share information about their bullying prevention resources
- Inspiring everyone to unite for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion
- Helping to create a world without bullying
