The Los Alamitos Unified School District is bringing the "No Bullies" campaign to its schools, according to the Sun newspaper.

"Thanks to the campaign, there will soon be posters on school district’s campuses, featuring local students, spreading the message to their peers," reports the Sun.

The Miss Seal Beach Pageant organization started the program with the help of the school district.

The Miss Seal Beach Court members and Rosie Ritchie, the program’s director, and Marcela McSorley and Felix Flores, photographers, visited Rossmoor Elementary and Los Alamitos High School Jan. 3, reports the Sun. "They were there to interact with the students who were chosen to be in the posters that would spread the 'No Bullies' message."

"The Miss Seal Beach organization will be touring the Los Alamitos Unified School District in February, reading to students, educating our young community, encouraging them to make the right choice and use their voice to report the bully," Ritchie told the Sun newspaper.

To try to help combat bullying, it is good to start teaching kindness and tolerance to the youngest children. "Be A Buddy, Not A Bully” is a song on utube for children up to age 9 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Or7WPUtUnRo

This is a complete waste of effort. Kids have bullied kids for hundreds of years. Teach your kids to stand up for themselves.
