Celebrating Bullying Prevention Month

September 28, 2020

Clarke is proud to participate in #BullyingPreventionMonth in partnership with Stomp Out Bullying and other education institutions taking a stand against bullying.

Join us and show your support by wearing blue on World Day of Bullying Prevention, Monday, October 5! Send your #BlueUp photos to Send Email.

Throughout the month, Clarke will promote friendship by sharing books, songs and best practices that can help strengthen social and emotional learning. Follow along on social media with the hashtag #KindVibesOnly.

Friendships enable children to learn more about themselves and develop their own identity. According to “Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students’ Perspectives on Bullying and School Climate,” published by the National Institute of Health, students who are deaf or hard of hearing are two to three times more likely to be bullied than their peers. With this elevated risk, Clarke is committed to providing a safe and inclusive space for students.
