In October, We Wear Blue

Typically October is the season where we start getting excited about carving pumpkins, trick-or-treating, dressing up, etc. Yes, October is the spookiest month, but did you know that it is also National Bullying Prevention Month? Bullying is happening everyday. Physically, verbally, and now cyber. Here at Mohawk Jr.-Sr. High School, we do everything we can to stop bullying as a whole. Here are some ways we have shown our support, and how you can show yours.
During October, you can get involved and take action to promote kindness and prevent bullying. You can show your support by promoting the month on social media. You can post pictures in blue and orange. You can also share your opinion! “” is an amazing website that posts polls every Tuesday and Thursday in October. The reviews show how many children, teens, and adults are trying to prevent bullying.
The students and staff of Mohawk wore blue to show their support against bullying. The goal: encourage our students and community to work together to stop bullying, cyber bullying, and just put an end to hatred. The color blue was chosen because in many cultures, it is seen as bringing calmness and peace, as well as importance and confidence.

Think about the behaviors you engage in. At work or school, what might be a light-hearted joke to one person, may be damaging to another. Even though words may not affect you, they can be extremely hurtful. Thank you for being part of the movement to prevent bullying, and showing your support.
