Bullying Prevention and Awareness: Choose Peace-Stop Violence

Broward County Public Schools is taking back control in our communities.  After last year's horrific incidents with our local students, Michael Brewer and Josie Ratley (both 15 year-olds at the time), the time is now to be a force and take action.

Choose Peace-Stop Violence Week will be held September 20-24 across Broward County.
Schools and the community facilities across Broward will be simultaneously speaking with one voice and one goal in mind – to eliminate youth violence in Broward County.

According to CBS News students at Manatee Bay Elementary decorated the campus with homeade pinwheels for peace. Masses of students from both Deerfield Beach Middle School and Cypress Bay High School joined together to create giant human peace signs.
