Title: Bullies Beware
"Bullies Beware" reminds students of all the people who have died because of bullying and that this is not the way to handle being bullied. It focuses on what a bully is, what comprises violence, and how a victim can feel better about them self. A survey is given out that will later give a school profile on bullying. "Reality Matters" handouts are dispersed, discussed and compared to our local school.
