FLCRC held its National Bullying Awareness Virtual Conference on Saturday, October 24th. As part of National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, this event informed and empowered participants to unite and mobilize in standing against bullying. Staff, parents and students participated in fun ice breakers, prize giveaways including Powerbeats Earphones and a smart TV, and interactive sessions. The informative and engaging breakout sessions—utilizing PACER’s You’re Not Alone curriculum—prompted rich discussion on topics related to bullying. Attendees showed their support of Unity Day by wearing orange and sporting orange Zoom backgrounds.In response to the question
