Middle School - The SRMS Takes a Stand Against Bullying!
Skip Navigation LinksHome > Middle School > Bullying
Although bullying situations among middle school students have been around for as
long as any of us can remember, the topic of bullying has finally become important
on the National Level.
Clearly bullying behavior is not desirable and never tolerated here at SRMS. When
we are made aware of bullying events, interventions are put into place that can
include both punishment and counseling.
Unfortunately, a lot of bullying events go unreported (especially those that happen
through the world’s new technologies such as IM, Email & Text Messaging). Of
course not every bullying event needs to be reported, because some times the students
can find their way through with help from friends or family.
Our concern though is that some bullying goes unreported because the "victim" does
not get the help they need to handle the situation. To encourage students to seek
help in these situations, we have increased the level of education and information
we provide middle school students on the topic of bullying.
One such program is offered by our Student Assistance Counselors and the Peer Leadership
Program we call STYLE. Our 8th grade STYLE Peer Leaders go into the 7th grade classrooms
and do role-plays and give information on where to turn for help if you are a bully
or are being bullied. Kids telling kids that bullying is not welcome here at SRMS
is a very valuable tool in our quest to keep kids safe.
On the tool bar to the right we have also provided you with some valuable literature
on the topic bullying and a number of direct links to quite a few other related
If your child ever demonstrates bullying behavior or is being bullied, please be
sure to reach out to your child’s middle school guidance counselor for assistance.
"If we want to have peace in the world, we have
to start with the children."
