Friday, January 28th officially wrapped up National No Name Calling Week.
All week Camp Point Central High School has had activities to bring awareness to bullying in the school.
Students have put together pod casts to play every morning and given anonymous testimonials of times they have witnessed bullying.
Each day a portion of the school was told to wear gray to represent a statistic of bullying.
Firday kids were told to wear black and gold to stand up against bullying.
"We have consequences in place, but sometimes it's getting students to understand that it needs to stop. So that's why we went with the 'R u the one?' campaign. So it's not 'you need to stop bullying,' it's 'you need to stand up to someone who's doing it to someone else'," said Guidance Counselor Sarah Tripett.
