Ridgefield Students Show Support Against Bullying

October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a campaign to promote anti-bullying awareness in schools, and students in the Ridgefield School District are showing their support for the cause.

Ribbons fill the fence at the Sunset Ridge Intermediate/View Ridge Middle School campus.

Orange is the color signifying support for students who have been bullied.  To kick off National Bullying Prevention Month, Ridgefield students showed their support by personalizing an orange ribbon and tying it to a designated fence at their school.

The fences, emblazoned orange by the multitude of ribbons tied on by students and staff, demonstrate unity against student bullying.  The anti-bullying ribbons will remain on display at each school during the entire month of October in support of National Bullying Prevention Month.

Union Ridge Elementary students personalize ribbons to show their support against bullying.


RHS students pledge their support at tables manned by District Office staff.

Students at South Ridge Elementary tie their ribbons to the school fence.

This month, in classrooms and planned assemblies in the district, students are learning how kindness, acceptance and inclusion help to prevent and put a stop to bullying behavior.

Students and staff in the district will be wearing orange on Unity Day, Wednesday, October 24–the signature event of National Bullying Prevention Month–in support of anti-bullying awareness.
