PARSIPPANY — In recognition of National Bullying Prevention Month, the New York Jets and STOMP Out Bullying, through the Jets Tackle Bullying program presented by Bethpage Federal Credit Union will honor Central Middle School, on Tuesday, October 15.
Jets Center Jonotthan Harrison along with STOMP Out Bullying will recognize Central Middle School for their commitment to preventing bullying with a fun and informative presentation.
In August, the Jets along with STOMP Out Bullying and Bethpage Federal Credit Union, hosted the 4th annual Jets Tackle Bullying Educators Symposium at MetLife Stadium. More than 200 educators and coaches from the tri-state area attended the event which featured content on digital wellbeing and anti-hazing.
Attendees then had the opportunity to implement the Jets Upstander of the Week program at their school during the season which highlights an upstander on Twitter each week. Schools that implement the program receive 34 tickets to award to students along with a Jets Upstander of the Week t-shirt.
Central Middle School has been selected for their first three Jets Upstander of the Week posts of the season. Any school who posts an Upstander of the Week for the entire season will be eligible for several additional school recognitions in the spring.
Through the organization’s collaboration with STOMP Out Bullying, the Jets and Bethpage Federal Credit Union have made available a Jets branded STOMP Out Bullying Educator’s Prevention Toolkit at no cost to schools in the tri-state area, conducted their annual Jets Tackle Bullying Symposium, created awareness through a robust PSA campaign and annually host an anti-bullying awareness day at MetLife Stadium on game day. With the assistance of Bethpage Federal Credit Union, the Jets will expand the program throughout Long Island this school year.
