In recognition of October as National Bullying Prevention Month, students of Central Boulevard Elementary School learned how to diffuse situations of bullying during an interactive assembly.

The assembly, which kicked off the school’s character education initiative, featured “Sticks and Stones,” a musical written, produced and presented by performing artist Lyle Cogen. The show used a 3-D set to discuss different types of bullying, the characteristics of a good friend and inclusion. It also invited students to take on the different roles in a bullying situation by having them participate in skits. 

Additionally, members of Daisy Troop 3033 spelled out the school’s character education initiative slogan, “Choose Kind,” on the school fence with blue and yellow plastic cups.
