Bullying has been the subject of many headlines in recent weeks, and schools across Western New York and throughout the country are looking for new ways to decrease instances of bullying and promote peace.
At Mary Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Cheektowaga, students began the school year by signing an anti-bullying poster which now hangs in the school gym as a constant reminder for students to treat others with respect. The poster carries the headline “Flyers Against Bullying.”
Additionally, under the guidance and leadership of eighth-grade teacher Mrs. Michelle Moore, the school now has an anti-bullying club. The club's first meeting drew a tremendous turnout and students came up with several great ideas to help promote an anti-bullying message both in the school and in the community. One of MQA's seventh-grade students, Michael Riley, went so far as to write and create an anti-bullying video!
