Students at Graettinger-Terril Elementary School will be celebrating bullying awareness week, November 13th-16th. Our theme for the week is “Stand up! (To Bullying)”. On Friday we are asking all students to wear the color blue for bully prevention week. We will also be having a closing assembly. Bullying Awareness Week is not about what we could or should be doing, but rather what we can do. If we stand up to bullying we will have a better school because students won’t be scared to come to school.
