On Wednesday, Oct. 10, students and staff at Maple Grove Junior High took part in the Unite Against Bullying Day sponsored by the Pacer Center.
The hallways were covered with students and staff wearing orange and taking a stand against bullying. MGJH students and staff wore orange to show that they care about others and they won’t tolerate bullying in the school.
Students also gave away about 1,300 strips of orange ribbon that were worn throughout the day.
Many staff and students signed the pledge poster stating they are united against bullying at Maple Grove Junior High. Orange Signs were also hung in hallways to encourage everyone to step up and be a hero against bullying.
Students have been talking about bullying in their Connections classes and were shown a video that shows the hurtful impact of bullying and ways students can step up. Overall, MGJH had great participation and compassion for this event and many showed their strong sense of Mustang community.
