Bully prevention week in Lodi

Lodi Unified has declared Thursday as Bully Prevention day and schools from around the district will be marking the occasion with various events, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Catherine Pennington said.

Ansel Adams got a jump start Monday by bringing in country music singer Lizzie Sider, a 15-year-old who is making a name for herself in Nashville with her song “Butterfly.”  

Other activities suggested for schools include the “crumpled paper activity” where students are asked to crumple and stop a piece of paper without ripping it. Then, they try to fix it by smoothing it out, but realize the paper can’t be fixed. It has permanent scars.

Another message is the acronym T.A.G. to use when being bullied or kids see people being bullied.  T.A.G. stands for T- Tell the person you don’t like what they are doing or saying. A – Ask them to stop. G – Go get help.

The final suggested activity is called “sticks and stones” which focuses on cyberbullying and teaching how online bullying can be anonymous and go viral.
