Today November 9, 2017 we had the Cleveland Playhouse Square actors come to our school and performed their show "Kicked" to our 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders in the gymnasium.
Model how to treat others with kindness and respect:
In Kicked the bullying subsides when the children come together and act with kindness and respect. As Diondre says: "If someone on your team help them and respect. As Deondre says: "If someone's on your team help them to the goal line, If someone's not on your team, respect them. And if you're trying your hardest to prevent them from scoring and if they score anyway, congratulate them because you better believe they were trying their hardest, too"
Kids learn from adult's actions. By treating others with kindness and respect, adults show the kids in their lives that there is no place for bullying. even if it seems like they are not paying attention, kids are watching how adults manage stress and conflict, as well as how they treat their friends, colleagues, and family.
A special thank you to our Playhouse Square performers, students, teachers, staff.
