With October touted as Bullying Awareness month, the issue has been a subject of much discussion in classrooms across Central New York.
Many OCM BOCES' programs across the three-county area have explored the topic as part of their classroom curriculum. OCM BOCES Transitional Education Program students spent much of the month working hard on anti-bullying campaigns by doing research, creating posters and PowerPoint presentations and making anti-bullying pledges.
On Friday Nov. 5, the TEP students also sold Stand Up Speak Out wristbands at the Career Training Center in Liverpool. The bands were sold for $1 each and raised $100 to go to the Pacer Center for Bullying Prevention.
