Thank you to all the students and staff at McAuliffe who supported anti-bullying efforts on October 18th by wearing white shirts and blue jeans. By participating, we help bring awareness to school bullying and how it can be stomped out. McAuliffe sent a clear message that there is no place for bullying at McAuliffe or any Oceanside school.
