Kids Graduate From Anti-Bullying Program

Some Campbell Elementary second graders graduated from an anti-bullying program they started at the beginning of the year.

About 90 students participated in the “Steps to Respect” program led by a social worker from Catholic Charities Regional Agency.

Over the past few months, the students role played and participated different activities that taught them how to recognize bullying and report it.

The students also made a bullying video and helped illustrate a book on the topic.

“The students have noticed so much more bullying taking place in the schools, and they don’t know how to handle it,” said social worker Sarah Luzik. “They don’t know how to respond to it. They don’t know how to go to an adult and report bullying.”

School officials said they have seen a reduction bullying since they started the program last year.

Funding was provided by the Swanson Foundation.
