|Calhoun Middle-High School will host its second annual Anti-Bullying
Awareness Week during the week of November 14th through the 18th.|
We invite the public to join and make this a community event. Bullying should be looked at as a public problem that demands everyone's attention.
People often do not understand the amount of pain bullies can inflict until it happens to someone they love. Make no mistake about it; bullying is a big problem that affects lots of kids. If you watch television or surf the net you probably have seen a recent article or news program on the damaging effects bullying has on kids and the community they live in.
Some frightening statistics include:
• 90 % of 4th through 8th graders report being bullied.
• 282,000 students in secondary schools are attacked each month.
• 75% of school shootings have been linked to bullying.
• Over 65% of people who bully others are incarcerated at one time or another.
The good news is that kids who are bullies can learn to change their behavior.
Please stand and join us in proclaiming the 3rd week of November as stamp out bullying week for Calhoun Schools and Community.
Calhoun Middle-High School will be doing the following activities during Calhoun's stamp out bully's week November 14th through the 18th. Please join us at any of the presentations or workshops that we are having.
