August 23-27 is locally recognized as Anti-bullying week throughout the San Diego Unified School District. This week at La Jolla High School, students have been participating in a number of spirited activities to help create awareness and put a stop to this horrible injustice. Activities include wearing purple ribbons in support of stopping bullying, to a school wide signing of a no-bully pledge. Other lighthearted activities include ‘free hugs’ friday, ‘ask me for a compliment’ stickers, and free cookies for freshmen in order to welcome the incoming class to high school. Purple, the official color of anti-bullying week, is a standout color on campus this week. The entire school has been decorated in purple ribbons, balloons, chalk, and posters. Chalk quotes on the ground cover everything from serious statistics about bullying and dropout rates, to inspirational and motivational sayings such as, “You look BEAUTIFUL today!”.
