PHOENIX - Bullying has gotten a lot of attention in the last few years.
With the increasing awareness, one Valley School district is bringing awareness to bullying during "No name calling week". A movement created to teach students about the dangers and long term effects of bullying.
Students at Kyrene Altadena Middle School are all too aware of bullying.
"I've seen mental bullying, and language bullying." said Ben Macey.
And Ben's not alone. Most of the students said they have either witnessed or have been a victim of bullying.
7th Grader Hayden Schweitzer admits that she's been on both sides, both a bully and a victim.
"You kind of know it's wrong, but you don't stop yourself. But then once you experience it yourself, you feel guilty and really feel bad about it."
To show their support to stop bullying, these students are wearing two different shoes to prove "walking" in someone else's shoes may be difficult.
The are also decorating their classroom doors in a "door decor war", and creating poetry and artwork.
They are trying to teach students to stop and think about how much they could be hurting others.
A lesson these kids promise not to forget.
