This graph shows the amount of kids being bullied over the years in different grades. Obviously bullying decreased from 2003-2005 but increased from 2005-2006. However, high school students experience more bullying than middle or elementary. We chose this graph because it shows the importance of bullying that the happen in all grade levels.

This is a picture of two young elementary girls getting along. This is an example of how safe kids can be when the Chapter 19 or the " Safe Schools Act " is being enforced. It can bring our community together and bullying and decrease again. We chose this picture because it shows that bullying can be stopped by the "Safe Schools Act'' being enforced.

Not only kids at the same age bully each other, but older aged kids bully younger kids. This is a picture showing a teenager bullying a little kids half his size. This is also an example of physical bullying. We chose this picture because it shows an example of physical bullying and we thought it looked nice because it was a cartoon picture.
