Students at Columbus Elementary were treated to the award-winning, interactive Box Out Bullying presentation at school this week. Woven into the entertaining and sometimes funny performance are serious lessons that give kids the power to maintain a positive school culture. Students learn by seeing, listening, and doing and becoming a part of the show which is an effective way to ensure message retention
In an effort to promote more empathy and kindness in the school, the PTA generously arranged for the program to come to Columbus. The message ties in well with the ongoing Character Education program that is promoted by the school. Box Out Bullying founder and creative director, Jeremy Rubenstein, noted “Bullying doesn’t just affect the school, but the entire school community.” Presentations like this are a great way to get the dialog started and remind students of the importance of treating others with respect and kindness.
