October is National Bullying Prevention Month when schools around the U.S. teach bullying awareness and prevention and celebrate school unity and diversity.
CPMS' counseling team– George McMurtry (8th), Rachel Taleff (7th), & Andrew Witt (6th)– have a full line-up of activities to engage students during the week of October 22nd-26th.
During Advisory class, students will discuss what defines bullying and differentiates from other behaviors.
Students will participate in a school-wide survey and work in groups to identify positive messages they want Cedar Park students to aspire to.
At lunch time students will be able to sign an "Anti-Bully Pledge" at tables hosted by our 8th grade WEB Leaders.
On Wednesday, October 24th, all students will be encouraged to where orange, the official color of Bully Prevention Month!
We hope you enjoy this article "Rude vs. Mean vs. Bullying: Defining the Differences" and have an opportunity to discuss it with your student.

Bully Report Form: Cedar Park students are encouraged to report incidents of bullying to any adult at school. In addition, counselors have "Bully Report Forms" outside of their offices in A, B, and C Hall. Please feel free to contact your student's counselor should you have any questions.
