BROOKLYN - Students at P.S. 119 wrote kind notes to each other in class, shared cultural dances and even made up anti-bullying rhymes as part of a Respect For All Week program.

The program was created by the Department of Education in an effort to combat bullying and harassment by raising awareness on respect for each other.

During the week, schools will have opportunities to highlight and build upon ongoing diversity programs and curriculum-based instruction. Schools will also have opportunities to embark upon new initiatives that promote respect for diversity.

Officials say letters were also sent to parents and guardians, asking them to have a meaningful discussion with their children and families about respect at home.
