Bullying Prevention

Help Providence Team Up Against Bullying!

 

Statistics:

 

Approximately 160,000 children stay home a day because they are afraid of being bullied according to the US Department of Education.  That's over three million students a month.  A national survey of students grade 6-10, found 13 percent reported bullying others, 11 percent reported being the target of others, and another percent said that they bullied others and were bullied themselves.  Experts say the facts are troubling because bullying too often leads to violence, loss of self-esteem, depression and even suicide.  Source: National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center

 

Providence Middle School will be teaming up against bullying.  Providence students will learn how to identify bullying behaviors, learn skills to address inappropriate behaviors and gain empathy to assist others in these situations.  Through schoolwide activites, lessons and modelling, we will team up against bullying and everyone will be respected at Providence.
