Unity Day at Chippewa School calls for an end to bullying

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines bullying as "unwanted aggressive behavior by school-aged children."

This October, school districts across Illinois are confronting the issue in an effort to help those who sometimes just can't help themselves.

One such school district is District 128 in Palos Heights.

Teachers, students and parents got together Wednesday morning to talk about bullying, and how mean words and acts can hurt in the most profound ways – in person and online.

Over the last couple years, several kids as young as 11 have committed suicide after being bullied incessantly.

At Chippewa School, there was a united effort to stop bullying in the first, second, third grades before it becomes a habit.

The kids wore orange and drew anti-bullying posters as part of Wednesday's program.

Unity Day's catch phrase? "Make it orange and make it end."
