Yesterday, March 6, 2013, was National Spread the Word to End the Word Day. This day is a day devoted to raise awareness and end the use of the ‘R’ word and to put a stop to bullying in schools. The Coon Rapids-Bayard (CR-B) Student Council organized a K-12 “wear blue day”, in an attempt to spread the word to end the word. We took a group picture and then utilized the new dance fad and made our own Harlem Shake video to promote anti-bullying and the negative connotation of the word retard. We wanted to share this good news story from a small school doing our part to spread the word to end the word!!!
