(WBNG Binghamton) October 7th is National Blue Shirt Day and students at MacArthur Elementary celebrated in a sea of blue.

Hundreds of students wore blue 'bullying stops here' shirts in honor of National Bully Prevention Month.

Students around the world were asked to sport the color as a way to band together.

Students at MacArthur saw it as a day of education and laying a solid foundation against bullying.

"It's repeated, and that it's intent is to hurt and that's what we want to make sure isn't happening in the schools. That school is a safe place for our kids to come and that there are adults that will take the time to listen to the concerns that are brought to them," said MacArthur Principal Maria McIver.

The school readjusted funding to make sure all of its students were able to have a shirt to help stomp out bullying across the nation.
