BE BULLY FREE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ASSEMBLY WITH DEBBIE DUNN

Discover Anti-Bullying Program

Guaranteed to

* Help Promote a Positive School Climate

* Help Reduce School Absenteeism

* Help Reduce Negative Effects of Bullying

Be Bully Free Symbol



The Bully Free program teaches the following concepts:

VICTIMS:

   * Stand up straight, make eye contact, smile calmly, and 
remember to breathe. 
   * Deep breathing sends oxygen to your brain. Suddenly, you'll know what to say.  
   * Use "I Messages." 
   * Try to smile since your tears often gives a bully a false sense of power.
   * Try to be a friend to a bully. "Have you had a bad day? Would you like to talk about it?"

WITNESSES:

   * Politely but firmly tell bullies that being a bully is NOT okay. 
   * Withdraw your friendship from a bully if he or she insists on bullying your friends or acquaintances. 

BULLIES:

   * Bullies often are victims of bullying. 
   * The real way to feel important is by helping others and bypracticing your talents and skills - not by bullying.

Or you might want to pick certain students you have identified as victims or bullies to help reinforce the skills and techniques of becoming bully free.


After lunch from 1:00 to 2:00 (or some other 1-hour block) of your selection: 
The 59 target students you handpicked will perform a 50-minute seven-act play called “No Bullies In The Kingdom” for the entire school. Debbie will act as narrator and director, guiding the students through the entire process.
