The month of October is Bully Prevention Month. Throughout the month, Riverview students participated in a variety of activities to support “Being a Buddy, Not a Bully.” These activities included lessons on how to be a buddy and not a bully during guidance class, Friendship Fridays when students dressed up (crazy socks, hats, color day) to support friendships and buddies, a school-wide poster contest, and sock collection for the Sharing Center. As a culminating activity, students in first through fourth grade participated in a bully prevention assembly on Oct. 28. During this assembly, students were reminded the importance of “Being a Buddy, Not a Bully.” Students were reminded of the numerous activities from throughout the month and reminded that bully prevention does not end with the month of October. Riverview students were surprised with the gift of the Buddy Bench from Scherrer Construction. Sixth-grade students performed short skits to explain the idea of the buddy bench to younger students. Also during the assembly, grade level winners from the school-wide poster contest were announced. Deputy Ray Rowe spoke to students about the buddy bench and how to “Be a Buddy, Not a Bully.” The assembly ended with all students taking the “I am a kid against bullying!” pledge.┬áJim Scherrer, president/CEO of Scherrer Construction, said “We are happy to provide Riverview Elementary with their own Scherrer Cares Buddy Bench and are confident that the students will use the anti-bullying tool to spread kindness, create friendships, and prevent bullying in their school and community.”
