Good Morning! Today is Friday, January 24, 2020. It is a White Day
Friday: In honor of No Name Calling Week, Kaleidoscope Club and Student Council would like to give you some tips on how to be a strong ally if you see someone being bullied. Today's tip: Don't be a bystander. Don't just stand there laughing or joining in. That makes you part of the problem. Instead, find an adult you trust and tell them what happened. Adults can't help stop bullying if they don't know it's happening.
