Green Bay elementary school dedicates week to preventing bullying

Local News

At Keller Elementary School in Green Bay, students have spent the week participating in activities aimed at building friendships and preventing bullying.

“We make it fun but we also make the message important so that kids are learning to really work with each other and stand up against bullying,” Principal Dan Malmberg told Local Five.

Each day of the week featured a different theme that students could dress up for, including a “Mismatch Day” that encouraged individuality, and “Put a Lid on it Day,” that focused on reminding students that if they don’t have anything nice to say, “put a lid on it.” Students wore hats to school for that particular theme.

Thursday’s theme was “Rainbow Day,” in which students could wear all colors of the rainbow.

They also worked on decorations for Thursday night’s Friendship Dance, which is a family event after the conclusion of the school day.

“They were using all different colors to represent the fact that we’re all a little bit different, but when we all come together, we make a beautiful rainbow…we’re really trying to build a strong community where kids feel safe and supported.” Malmberg said.
