Harbor High and other schools in the district are challenging bullying head-on. Bolstered by a national campaign led by President Obama, local students are wearing blue or purple to make a statement against bullying behavior. At Harbor High, students have been wearing blue shirts or ribbons on Mondays during October to show their support for the National Anti-Bullying Campaign. Student-led clubs like the Queer Straight Alliances, Interact and others are supporting the effort.

“This means the world to every student who has ever been bullied,” said Michelle Goodwin, Harbor High student and representative to the School Board. “Through bringing awareness to bullying, we as a school and a community hope to stop it.”
