Bullying is a problem and needs to be eliminated. We partnered with Olson Elementary School in Marina to implement a Bully Awareness Program to 4th grade students. Physical, verbal, and relational bullying impact students academically, socially, and individually. Both, bullies and victims, suffer long term effects that can bring them negative outcomes. Our pre and post surveys completed by students, indicated they do encounter bullying incidents at school. To better address bullying issues, schools should adopt and implement our Capstone as part of their curriculum.
