Laurel Middle School
Laurel, Mississippi

Bully Prevention Month
Because of the emphasis placed on cyber-bullying as well as on-campus bullying, LMS designated January as "Bully Prevention Month." Throughout the month, activities were planned in classrooms and by clubs/organizations, speakers were featured, and a pep rally took place which discouraged bullying. Faculty and staff focused on positive ways to solve problems using the five core values of Community of Caring as well as PBIS. Students were motivated to show respect, responsibility, and caring as we continue to be a trusting family at Laurel Middle School. The idea was to teach life-long skills and strategies to our students so that they realize bullying is not the way to handle any situation that may arise in their life.
