King Elementary Principal Mary Cooper says the school’s monthly lunchtime Anti-bullying Club is a way for students to learn skills and ways to be empowered to stand up to bullying.
“They also get to meet a whole lot of other students that they might not already know by name, and every time that a child knows another child by name, it decreases the chance for bullying,” she says. “So this is such a powerful group, and it’s a group I love spending time with because they soak up this learning and they make our school better.”
She co-leads the group with three social workers, who are King parents.
