School pledges to be bully-free

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Bullying in school is nothing new. But, Pine Tree Junior High wants to make it a thing of the past.

Students and faculty at Pine Tree are pledging to take a stand against bullying. It's called "No Place for Hate."

School Counselors want students to take the upper-hand on bullying.

Today, students signed a pledge to stop bullying in its tracks.

They can also drop messages of apology in the "Apology Box." The messages are anonymous, and school officials hope the box will help students open up about bullying and hold themselves accountable.
