No bullying at WUJH

The West Union Junior High Student Council hosted an Anti-Bullying Awareness Month in October. October is the national month for the Anti-Bullying campaign.

For the month, students decorated the school with the national anti-bullying color of orange, with positive messages on flyers for those that have been bullied in their life. Students also donned orange ribbons and wore orange clothing to school in support of the cause.

The highlight of the event was a video made by teacher Stephanie Nuber and her junior high students. In the video, students described the names that they have been called and ways in which they have been bullied. At the end of the video, those same students provided positive advice toward others who are currently suffering from this national issue that knows no boundaries amongst skin color, religion, gender, and age.

Nearly everyone in their life has been the victim of a bully at some time. The aim of the awareness campaign at WUJH was to not just make students stop bullying each other, but to teach students that it is acceptable for them to take a stand for others that are being bullied.

During the month of October, students at West Union Junior High School participated in an Anti-Bullying campaign. Here, Ashton Barr displays the poster he created for the project.
