Kaiserslautern middle and elementary schools marked their "Say No To Bullies Day" on Wednesday by wearing pink, making posters, watching videos, learning about cyberbullying and pledging to stop bullying in school.

At the middle school, seventh-grade counselor Michelle Weston taught a class on the possible dangers of bullying on the Internet, while in the computer room sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders pledged to stop bullying in school by signing a poster that was later hung in the school’s main hallway.

At Vogelweh Elementary, pupils also pledged to stop bullying, and in Susan Osinski’s fourth-grade class, children were instructed to bully – then to apologize. For every insult they could think of, Osinski tore off a piece of a red paper heart, representing a classmate’s heart. After the heart was torn to pieces, the pupils apologized and the heart was taped together again.
