THE BRONX - Councilman Larry Seabrook is urging students at P.S. 160 to stop bullying and respect each other.

The visit is part of the Department of Education's Respect For All Week, 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.
