October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. To signify its importance, STOMP Out Bullying™ created WORLD DAY OF BULLYING PREVENTION™ which is observed on the first Monday of each October.
On this first Monday of October, students and adults alike are encouraged to #BlueUp by wearing our blue shirt or their own to make that the day (October 5th, 2020) that bullying prevention is heard around the world.
We chose blue because in many diverse cultures blue brings peace. The color conveys importance and confidence. For 12 years, this campaign has been so successful that it has gone global.
We would like to give a great big shout out to our ECES Eagles! They are truly choosing to Be a Buddy NOT a Bully!
