A 10 year old girl committed suicide


A 10-year-old girl recently committed suicide. They say that bullying was on of the factors of her death. But really? This 10-year-old girl was being bullied and she decided to commit suicide instead of dealing with it. But I’ll let you read the article for yourself from the following link:

Bullying isn’t as simple as you think it is.


Bullying isn’t just student to student, it can also be teachers bullying students. A 15-year-old special education student, from New Jersey, caught a video of his teacher bullying him. The things the teacher said were horrible. The link below provides more information…

Teach this to your kids young.


Great exercise for all my teacher friends! “A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following assignment. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, but not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it t…hey’re sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they’re sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying!!”

After School Group?


If you are a Oakridge High School student who is truly interested in our cause, please read this: If we made an after-school program like GSA for anti-bullying would you go? We would be able to share stories and get help for people, we can have maybe a bit of time so that if someone would like to share a story to just one of us in general they could and we could work towards getting a law. Like this post and comment with thoughts if you would be interested in OHS having an anti-bullying group!

Flyer anyone?


Callie Pearson is making a flyer that will be run by the teacher before copies are printed. It’s about our group and gives out contact info and such, but we want to post them around so that our group can get bigger. Our group and another anti-bullying group in our class are also thinking about creating an after-school group for anti-bullying and we will keep you updated on all of this. We will post a status right after this one to see how things will work, so please respond to it!
