Throughout the month of October, students and staff at Eureka Elementary participated in a number of activities to promote bullying prevention. Each week, the school had a different dress day to promote preventing bullying. The dress days were: Oct. 4, Future Statesmen united against bullying, wear blue and white; Oct. 11, team up against bullying, wear team shirt; Oct. 18, put a lid on bullying, wear a hat; Oct. 23, National Unity Day: unite against bullying, wear orange; Oct. 25, pair up against bullying, twin day; and Oct. 31, we boo against bullying, wear a costume. The school also hung a banner in the hallway for students to sign to pledge to be bully free. The students were reminded of the pledge they made every time they entered the building. On Oct. 23, which was designated National Unity Day, the students and staff wore orange and participated in a peaceful anti-bullying march and chant around the school. The march gave students an opportunity to express the importance of promoting kindness, respect, inclusion and acceptance to all.
