DeKalb High School is now in its second year of implementing the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. Through this program we have implemented three Baron Beliefs (Respect, Responsibility, and Integrity) in order to create a better culture and climate at DeKalb High School and prevent bullying behaviors.  As our program continues to develop, we are excited to see the program grow and mature. This year, we wanted the students to take some ownership in our Anti-Bullying movement. At the beginning of this year applications were distributed and we had 17 students join the “Anti-Bullying Council” lovingly referred to as “ABC.” This group of energetic young people is helping to plan our Wednesday Baron Pride Meetings that each and every class participates in. Every class has at least 3 representatives.  Committee Members include: Sean Mentzer, Alison Kennedy, Katie Shearer, Ashley Hughes, Sarah Sell, Elizabeth Bolinger, Shayna Burrage, Riann Parsons, Leah Hefty, Allie Gaff, Dakota Kline, Quincy Moreland, Lucas Adams, Dylan Wetzel, Zack Jones, Dylan Hulbert, Dalton Bell. Faculty Advisors include: Miss Carol Fike and Mrs. Jenna Scheiber.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month! This year to show our support, DeKalb High School staff and students will Unite Against Bullying during Unity Day on Wednesday October 9, 2013. Show your support by wearing the color orange, writing the word Unity on your hand, notebook, or create a Unity poster to hang on your locker. Join the movement and make it orange to make it end!
