ABC 123 Anti-Bullying Club Is For Me! Alma Schrader Elementary School
Cape Girardeau, Missouri, USA
Principle 4: Creates a caring school community.
Topic: Bullying/Peer Cruelty Prevention
Grade Levels: K-4

Alma Schrader ABC 123 Anti-Bullying Club Is For Me! was developed as a student-initiated practice by five second grade students in response to a playground name-calling incident. After reporting the incident, their action resulted in a partnership with faculty and their own subsequent leadership role in lessening the possibility of further name-calling or bullying incidents among other students. The student leaders spent several recesses forming an anti-bullying club and awareness campaign to include all students. Their anti-bullying campaign consisted of a hall banner creation, club song composition, and club membership cards for all student participants. A highlight of these leadership roles was conducting a business meeting with a local vendor to settle on the club t-shirt design. Ultimately, over 80 second grade students participated in the anti-bullying club song assembly performance while wearing their club t-shirts. The club is now open to all K-4 students who pledge to further peace and kindness. This is all because of the leadership of five second graders.
