CUMMING, Georgia. —Students at Brookwood elementary joined more than 100,000 students and staff in schools across the country to Box Out Bullying.
The show will feature a colorful cast of characters that will juggle, perform musical numbers, show off magic tricks and involve the audience all while raising awareness about the importance of bystander empowerment and sustaining a positive school culture.
“Box Out Bullying was terrific, absolutely terrific”, said Kathy Bain, School Counselor and Olweus Trainer.
Three age-appropriate assembly presentations will be presented for students in Pre-K through 6th grade. Students will also be introduced to Four Anti-Bullying Rules, a clear definition of bullying, and much more! The troupe also will stress other positive habits such as creating empathy, addressing potential problems, and the difference between telling (reporting) and tattle-telling (snitching).
“While students will take part in the performance throughout the week in their schools, it is equally important to share the message with their parents and families to encourage bullying prevention not only in school but in our homes, too,” she said. “We are happy to welcome Box Out Bullying to the community.”
