An Assembly of BlueSchools throughout District 16 recognized Bullying Awareness Week held from November 14th to 20th. Through assemblies and various other activities, strategies to reduce bullying both in and out of school, were promoted. Many of these strategies were student created and student led. Visitors to District 16 school web sites can see examples of these efforts in news items, newsletter articles and morning announcements. A Friday morning assembly at which Saint Andrew's Elementary School pupils wore blue to show solidarity, is typical of what took place in many district schools. This assembly included a performance of grade 5 students rapping their own anti-bullying composition which may be viewed by visiting . To see a photo gallery from this assembly visit .
