Ann and Kirsten Learn about Covert Bullies
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Ann and Kirsten are good friends, and they started a successful anti-bullying club at their school. The club was supposed to help students who had been bothered by bullies. So far, it seems to be helping many students.
 
2     Ann and Kirsten's club had a poster contest about bullying. They liked seeing all the posters that students designed to make everyone more aware of bullying. The winning poster pictured two students talking. The slogan, "Be a buddy, not a bully," was popular, and the poster seemed to make even more kids curious about the club.
 
3     The club meets every Tuesday after school. One day, a shy girl slipped into the club meeting. Everyone was sitting in a circle sipping juice and eating apples. The quiet girl sat down just as Ms. Sweet started the meeting.
 
4     "We're going to start off today by introducing ourselves. Let's go around the circle and have everyone say their names," said Ms. Sweet with a big smile.
 
5     When the new girl's turn came, she barely whispered "Lynn," and many of the others could not hear her.
 
6     "Does anyone have a story about a bully?" asked Ann.
 
7     "I had a big boy push me in the cafeteria line the other day. He was worried the sloppy joes would run out and tried to take my place in line. I had seen him do that several times to second graders and third graders, so I know he has this bad habit. He acted like a bully," said Sharon. Her flaming red hair made her hard to miss in a crowd.
 
8     "What did you do?" asked Kirsten, who was always curious about how different kids handled bullying.
