October is Bully Prevention Month

The Monique Burr Foundation for Children, Inc. invites school counselors to use and share their free bully prevention lessons.  The lesson plans can be shared with teachers, school counselors, and administrators to educate students about 5 Safety Rules to help prevent and address bullying situations.  

Also, watch for more information about their Bullying Prevention Social Media Campaign (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) throughout the month of October, where classrooms and schools will have the opportunity to post how they are demonstrating “kind vibes” using the hashtags #kindvibes, #childsafetymatters, and #teensafetymatters.
