PACER, a national bullying organization, reports that 1 in 4 students have admitted to being bullied while at school. To try to raise awareness and stop bullying, the Wakefield Upstanders are hosting a Week of Action for the 2015-2016 school year. Next week, December 7-11th, there will be a different activity in Town Hall during all three lunches.
Here’s the schedule for each day:
Monday: Blue Day (wear blue)
Town Hall Activity: window painting
Blue is the color for national bullying awareness. Wear blue to show your support for the cause. We will also paint windows during all lunches in Town Hall.
Tuesday: Buttercup Day
Town Hall Activity: compliment friends
Send compliments to your friends! Write people positive notes and they will be delivered during the next Warriors” Period.
Wednesday: Rice Paper Day
Town Hall Activity: Rice paper bad feelings and participate in the promo video
Three things happen on Wednesday: write a bad feeling, or something negative someone has said to you, on a piece of rice paper. Watch it dissolve (to represent you letting of it). If you want, you can also be in The Upstanders’ promo video. There will also be a bake sale after school.
Thursday: Boxes of Compliments
Town Hall Activity: participate in the promo video
There will boxes placed throughout the school full of compliments. If you’re having a bad day, you can just take a compliment…hopefully it will make your day a little better. If you want, you can also be in The Upstanders’ promo video.
Friday: Orange Day (wear orange)
Town Hall Activity: Banner signing
Wear orange (the national color for unity) to unite against bullying. Sign the banner to pledge to stand up to bullying.
Let’s make it the best Week of Action yet!
