October is "Bullying Awareness Month"


Your child may be getting bullied, or is a bully, and you may not even know it.

 

Cascade Middle School Principal Stephanie Bennett says they gave kids a survey about bullying and found out that many kids weren't sure what bullying really was.

 

"It’s obviously a problem in middle school. Most of the kids here felt there were bullies by the popular kids. And so we wanted to get that out there. We feel that it's really important. If it's minor or major and I don't think that its' ever minor because if there's anything at all, then we need to take care of it."

 

Bennett says physical bullying is easy to spot; but with the popularity of social networking, e-mails and texting,  bullying can become covert and kids afraid to report the problem.

 

Cascade Middle School parents and staff, as well anyone interested are invited to a talk from bullying expert Trudy Ludwig on October 24th at Summit High Auditorium.
