This power point presentation was created by a 7B student at West Middle School in conjunction with our Take Action Against Bullying program. She took the initiative to create this presentation on her own time because bullying prevention is a topic in which she is passionate. The emphasis of her work parallels the school initiative to empower students to have a voice and take a stance against bullying. She presented her work to all of team 7B and teachers, and we here at West Middle are proud of her accomplishments and directive to create a piece which reflects what we all stand for against such a sensitive issue.

The following is the West Middle School Take ACTION pledge:
As students at West Seneca West Middle School, I agree to join with my peers to promote a better school environment for all.
I believe that EVERYONE should enjoy our school equally, and feel safe, secure, and accepted.
I pledge to take action and to...
Appreciate the uniqueness of every individual. I will appreciate and respect whatever differences I see.
Communicate positively with everyone I encounter. I will communicate that West Middle students treat everyone respectfully, by my actions and words. I will also communicate and report any instances of harassment or bullying I witness.
Trust that other students will treat me with kindness and courtesy. I will also trust that someone else will take action if I ask for help or report an incident.
Intervene when I see others being treated in a way that might make them scared, sad, or uncomfortable.
Own my own actions and take ownership for my school community. My actions can make a difference! I will be helpful, positive, and responsible.
Notify someone who can help if I have any doubts about what to do to help my fellow students.
