Bullying Prevention Week begins at Northland Pines Middle School
EAGLE RIVER - A Northwoods school wants to make sure its students continue to learn in a safe space. 

Northland Pines Middle School kicked off its Bullying Prevention Week on Monday. 

Students are taking charge of teaching each other the importance of bullying prevention.

 Throughout the week students will be going into classrooms to talk to their younger classmates about how they can work together. 

"It makes me feel very proud seeing kids that I stand up for and not being a bystander and just [letting] it happen," said 13 year old Amberleigh Pederson.

This week will also focus on bystander prevention. 

On Tuesday students will create "helping- hand," posters. 

The posters will be hung up around the school as a reminder to students that working together is the only way to solve the problem. 

"The reason why it's important to me, I want everyone to be happy," said 13 year old Garret Kohls.

 "I want to stop bullying, I want everyone to be happy.

 I want school to be a safe place."

Northland Pines Middle School will be doing activities all week to ensure students learn the importance of bullying prevention. 

On Wednesday students and administrators will wear orange and join hands in solidarity against bullying.
