HENRY CLAY SCHOOL
“Students are able to fully identify if behaviors are bullying or not. They are really seeing students at the heart, versus physical appearances that usually foster their bullying behavior.”
FRANK MADLA ELEMENTARY
San Antonio, TX
“I have heard kids use the phrase "don't be a monster" to other students who are saying hurtful things, so they remember the presentation. Students being able to see Frank created a connection and made it easier for them to remember what it was about. Very creative."
GEISLER MIDDLE SCHOOL
Walled Lake, MI
“I really feel the presentation sends a powerful message about needing to be kind and treating others the way you want to be treated. After the assembly students can also use the terminology about being an upstander and what that means and looks like."
