Stop Bullying Show
Some recent statistics show:
- An estimated 30% of all students - or 5.7 million children - are involved in bullying as either a bully, a target of a bully, or both.
- 160,000 children stay home from school every day due to bullying.
- Every 7 minutes, a child is bullied on a school playground. Adult intervention = 4%. Peer intervention = 11%. No intervention = 85%.
The Whispering Oak Elementary PTO presented Mr. Mike of the STOP Bullying show to its 3rd grade students on Friday, September 13, 2013.
The show raised awareness among the students about bullying - how to spot it and how to stop it. Mr. Mike also illustrated the importance of engaging in group activities by incorporating fun, magic, and circus skills into the show!
