Make Bullying History – 10.22.21 – Wear Blue
St. John School joins anti-bullying awareness groups to stomp out bullying in our schools and communities. Each October students pick a day to “blue-up”. Students get to wear clothes of their choice, in all blue, to practice standing up together and committing to ending bullying in the schoolyard, and in their community of friends and family. Student leaders provide teaching, encouragement, and reminders of how to identify and respond to behaviors meant to intimidate, pressure, or hurt their fellow students.
