CHEEKTOWAGA, NY - We are now 21 days into the Daybreak Good Story, and this morning's story features an important lesson about the affects of bullying in schools.
The "Box Out Bullying" program was presented at Cleveland Hill Elementary School in Cheektowaga yesterday.
The interactive theater presentation teaches young students how to recognize bullying, how to stop it and how to report it to those in charge.
"Ultimately students have the power to make school the kind of place they want," says Jeremy Rubenstein, Anti-Bullying Advocate. "They are superheroes. And with assemblies like this, and workshops that we provide, we give them common tools - not necessarily commonly-practiced tools - but very simple tools that they can use."
Box Out Bullying says the numbers of bullying cases usually drops after they visit a school.
