Students to show that "Kindness Matters" during BCPS Bullying Prevention Month

Kindness Matters
TOWSON, MD — Sharing random words of kindness. Sitting with someone you don’t know at lunch. Covering the restroom mirror with positive messages. These are all ways that students in Baltimore County Public Schools will celebrate BCPS Bullying Prevention Month in October with the theme, “Kindness Matters.”

“Every student deserves a positive and welcoming learning environment,” said BCPS Interim Superintendent Verletta White. “School climate is one of our systemwide priorities because we know that students who feel valued at school achieve more, grow more, and behave better.”

From Monday, Oct. 2, through Friday, Oct. 6, students will participate in a wide range of activities to demonstrate positivity and respect, including a bullying prevention pledge; a color and word of the day; and cyber-bullying awareness. Activities may continue throughout the month.

On Oct. 12, BCPS will hold its first Middle School Bullying Prevention Conference, giving students selected by their principal the opportunity to learn from workshops, and to work together to create a plan for their school.

Highlights from the week can be shared on Twitter using the hashtag #BCPSbekind or sent to the BCPS Department of Communications and Community Outreach at communications@bcps.org.
