No Bullies Here...
Superhero Anti-Bullying Program
The Superhero program is designed to empower children, parents, schools and other school personnel to effectively deal with the issue of bullying.
Who's your favorite Superhero?
The kids are all encouraged to wear their favorite superhero shirt/costume to school. This emphasizes that each one can be another's hero.
Bullying is everywhere...
No longer is bullying confined to the schoolyard where children could previously escape the pressure of bullies and retreat to a safe place called home. With the rise of the Internet come new ways for students to bully others nonstop. Bullying has become an epidemic that affects not only children, but parents, teachers and the community.
Bullying has serious, adverse educational effects, and students who are targets often experience extreme stress that can lead to symptoms of physical illness and a diminished ability to learn, according to the National Education Association. This translates into increased absenteeism and impaired performance, as indicated by decreased test scores.
