Bullying Prevention Month Resources
In October, schools and organizations across the country, including Clarke, join STOMP Out Bullying™ in observing National Bullying Prevention Month.
The goal: encourage schools, communities and organizations to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying and put an end to hatred and racism by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of all forms of bullying on children of all ages.
A study published by the National Institute of Health found that 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.
We asked Clarke alums what it means to be a good friend. Click here to hear what they had to say.
