East Rockaway Middle School Students Take a Stand

Throughout the month of October, East Rockaway seventh- and eighth-grade students were encouraged to sign an anti-bullying pledge banner that states: “Take a Stand, Lend a Hand. Stop Bullying.”

Prior to signing the pledge, school social worker Amy Weissman discussed what it means to be bullied with the students. They were also asked to reflect on their own behavior and think about whether it could ever be construed as bullying.
