Fruita Monument High School kicked off an anti-bullying campaign Wednesday.
They got started by decorating one of the walls in the school with anti-bullying messages.
Students are encouraged to come to the wall and sign their names, taking a stand against bullying at the high school.
After they sign, students are given a bracelet.
The kids say it's important to get the message out and let others know that the high school is a safe environment for everyone.
Eden Laase, a senior, explained, "Things that you're saying and doing hurt people, and if you don't think it's a big deal, it is to some people."
Another student took the time to point out that the word "bullying" doesn't necessarily mean a person is being harassed or mistreated in person. Modern technology is changing the way it can occur.
"I feel like people are more inclined on Facebook and Twitter to bully each other and put each other down so its not face to face," said student Shelly Jameson.
Other students, like sophomore Sarah Benton, were hopeful kids would take the time to think about what it feels like to be on the receiving end of what a bully dishes out.
"How would you like it if you were on the other end and going home and crying and stuff? You wouldn't have a very fun time," said Benton. "So just think for yourself in someone else's shoes."
Anti bullying week will continue through Friday.
