Anti-Bullying Program Mixes Canton and New Britain Students

The Courant (New Britain, CT) February 27, 2014:

"For Rozalynn Smith, anti-bullying programs have often entailed sitting and listening.
But the program on Thursday at Gaffney Elementary School had her singing and dancing. Students from Canton High School presented a multi-disciplined, interactive anti-bullying program they do around the state for fifth-graders that incorporates music, dance and performance.
'Most of the time they give you a talk but with this they did skits,' said Smith, a fifth-grader. 'And we got to talk with the students from Canton and some of them are really fun.'
The presentation on Thursday was done for all the fifth-graders at Gaffney and was in the works for a year. The word 'fun' was commonly used when Gaffney students were asked what they thought about the program. But they said a serious message came with the fun.
