 No Name-Calling Week: Jan. 24-28


No Name-Calling WeekMore than 100,000 students will participate in No Name-Calling Week (NNCW) which runs this week -- Jan. 24-28. This event gives you the opportunity to have real conversations with students about how to end bullying and name-calling in your school. Unfortunately, recent events across the country have highlighted the wide-spread problem of bullying.


We've created a folder in our Tips for Teachers Group with lesson plans and activities to help you plan ways to observe this important week with your students.
