Thorp, Wi. -- An area school held an event addressing the issue of bullying.
The 'Unite Against Bullying', or UAB event was held Monday night at the Thorp School District.
The event was aimed for all kids ages Pre-K to 12th grade.
Discussions, activities and movies were part of the event, showcasing how bullying is a real issue in schools.
Bran Ceranski, the principal of the thorp middle and high school says communication is the key to addressing the problem.
"I think the more information that gets out to parents to students to teachers to everybody the better we can communicate it and help solve the problem," Ceranski said.
Other 'Unite Against Bullying' events will be held at the Loyal, Colby and Neillsville School Districts later this month, and next month.
