Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district kicks off anti-bullying initiative

October is anti-bullying month and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system is looking for book-loving volunteers.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Book lovers, listen up!  Officials with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School district are asking for your help. 

October is anti-bullying month and CMS is kicking off an anti-bullying initiative called, "Stand up, Speak out, and Read." 

The initiative is meant to support the social and emotional needs of students and eliminate bullying not only in schools, but also in the Charlotte community. 

The CMS 'Making IT Better program,' under guidance from the North Star Literacy Initiative, is using the power of literacy to raise awareness and advocacy for bullying prevention, social-emotional wellness and safe environments where all kids have a welcoming place to learn.

You can volunteer to read at different schools across Mecklenburg County by visiting www.cms.k12.nc.us and clicking on the North Star Reading Partners tab in the Spotlight section located in the lower left section.
