Teachers and students have joined together to look for signs of bullying and not be a bystander when someone needs our help. We are practicing ways to step in and help someone who is the target of a bully.
1. Walk over and stand/sit next to the victim.
2. Use your words to tell the bully "No".
3. Tell an adult nearby what is happening.
