Throughout the month of October, students at Peebles Elementary have taken part in several activities to promote National Bully Prevention Month. The theme of the month was “Stomp Out Bullying”.
Each week, students had the opportunity to participate in different activities. On Oct. 3, PES kicked off the month to support bully prevention by wearing blue shirts for “Blue Shirt Day-World Day of Bully Prevention”. The rest of the week, students were provided bully education lessons by the school counselor. The lessons included defining bullying, ways to prevent bullying, and how to handle a bullying situation.
For the second week of the month, each student wrote what they would do to prevent bullying on a boot cut-out. The boots were displayed on a wall that was titled, “Together We Can Stomp Out Bullying”.

The boots are displayed on the wall at Peebles Elementary after students wrote on them their suggestions for ending bullying.

For the third week of October, each classroom was provided with a kindness bucket. The students wrote down kind behaviors they caught others displaying to fill up their classroom bucket. The following are responses that were put in kindness buckets: “I caught Dameon being kind, he was tying Alex’s shoe”, “I caught Walker helping with lunch cards”, “I caught Trenton being kind, he was playing with our new student at recess”, “I caught Chloe being kind, she was helping put up chairs and clean”, and “I caught Brayden being kind, he was giving pencils to people who didn’t have any.”
A poster contest was also held for students to showcase their ideas to prevent bullying. Each of the contestants worked extremely hard on their posters. Students at Peebles Elementary continue to work together to display positive character traits to prevent bully situations.
