Fox 11 News: Students in the Kaukauna school district are trying to put an end to bullying.
The effort is called “Be The Change.”
Students are encouraged to go outside of their own comfort zones, to connect with others, through games, activities and trust-building exercises.
The goal is to build strong connections and teach students about empathy.
“It allows the school to really learn about who we are as kids, as adults, and in the end it’s working to keep that momentum going forward and really allowing kids to feel safe and comfortable and welcome in a school environment,” said Dan Joseph, principal of Riverview Middle School.
School officials say the anti-bullying effort is about celebrating differences and creating mutual respect for everyone.
