Today, the eighth graders are hearing from presenters from Prevent Child Abuse Utah on Bullying. Students have heard about bullying a lot over the years, but it's always a good reminder of what bullying is and how students really have the power to change the culture of a school. All it takes is one person to stand up for someone, and others will follow. The presenters encouraged our students to look out for others, be a friend, think before they post, and report or ask for help if they are bullied.
They also reminded students of what to do if they're sad or want to harm themselves, providing information on the National Suicide Prevention hotline (#1-800-273-8255) and a reminder to use the SafeUT app.
