On January 14, Ed White students participated in a Bully Prevention Assembly where they learned how to identify a bully/bullies, ways to be an upstander instead of a bystander, and most importantly, if they "see something, they say something" to a trusted adult at school and at home.  You can check out some highlights from our Bully Prevention Assembly and photos below:
