4-County Anti-Bullying Song Kicked Off at Stillwater Elementary

This is a first – to create a song with four different elementary classes in four different counties. The topic: bullying. We’re on a mission  to end it, and I want to do my part by helping to create a “jingle” with kids from all over the Capital Region.

This is a GREAT start to what should prove to be a really memorable jingle to promote October being  Anti-Bullying Month.  I would like to thank the Academy For Character Education at the Sage Colleges for their sponsorship of this program.  You can go to their website for more information.
