Get a WICKED Attitude About Bullying

October is not only the month that many young people (and adults, too!) celebrate and enjoy Halloween; it is also National Bully Prevention Month. Why not integrate the two? Well, you can, more easily than you might think. Our partner the National School Climate Center's (NSCC) BullyBust campaign has joined forces with the Broadway musical WICKED to bring you a new campaign with loads of great resources using the witches of Oz to engage students. The program's spokesperson is the character at the heart of the musical, misunderstood green witch Elphaba, who will help students learn how to end to bullying for good. Sign up for the Partner School Program and receive classroom-based supports, including WICKED-themed activities, resources, and a national "Defying Gravity" essay contest.

Educators, get critical supports for your school, resources, and activities to engage students in reducing bullying and promoting upstander behavior, and join a dedicated community of schools nationwide. Learn more, and sign up for the Partner School Program.
