October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Students at Cascade Elementary School saw two plays about bully prevention presented by actors from the Bright Stars Touring Theatre Group out of Asheville, North Carolina. Kindergarten, first and second grade students saw “Bullysaurus Rex,” a dinosaur-themed anti-bullying adventure. Third, fourth and fifth grade students saw the drama “Bullied,” a powerful look at the effects of bullying on both the target and the bully. Both plays were provided by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission, and are part of the Comprehensive School Counseling Program at Cascade Elementary.
