(click here for Jenks policy ) In order to enforce the policy it is important everyone is clear of the definition of bullying. At Southeast we use the following definition to help elementary kids recognize bullying behavior. If you or someone you know is being bullied, please let one of the counselors know immediately so that the appropriate steps can be taken.
“Bullying is when a more powerful person hurts someone’s body, feelings or things or frightens someone on purpose, again and again.”
powerful – stronger physically or have psychological power
hurts – causes pain to body, feelings, or damages or steals things
frightens – scares you, fear for your safety
on purpose – intentionally (not accidentally)
again and again – over and over again, persistent or repeated mistreatment
