PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Peekskill Middle School's students, faculty and administration took a stand against bullying for "Blue Shirt Day" on Oct. 5.

“Blue Shirt Day is very important to us because it is a national focus on treating one another well, supporting one another, and speaking out against students being treated differently for whatever reason,” said Principal Jamal Lewis. “Our students hear the same message each morning, ‘Take care of one another and your environment.’ This day was a larger extension to that daily message.”

Blue Shirt Day is a worldwide initiative from Stomp Out Bullying. Clad in blue, participants embraced October as National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.

The administration at Peekskill Middle School held a Blue Shirt Challenge, which awarded the school team that could get the most students to wear blue with an ice cream party. Team 7N won with 98 students.
