A Supersized Anti-Bullying Assembly at Wilson Elementary

October 04, 2017 - Points of Pride

In an effort to help stop bullying at school, online, and in the community, Wilson Elementary faculty and staff invited students and their families out for a special spaghetti dinner served with a side of character development and bully prevention.

This was not your typical school assembly, one of the members from the Omegaman & Friends school assembly program presented their positive Superhero message that delivers Anti-Bullying and Character Development topics through a superhero theme.

The assembly challenged, not only students, parents to live a life as a Dream-Maker (making good choices) & not to be a Dream-Breaker (making bad choices).

Omegaman himself performed acts of strength; snapped a baseball bat & ripped a phone book in half as a tool to illustrate and maintain the attention of students to ensure the message was not lost.

Schools across the nation have seen a great increase of bullying in their schools. According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, a study in 2014-15 stated that 20.8% of students age 12-18 reported they have been bullied at school. Wilson Elementary is taking a proactive stance against this disturbing trend.

"Here at Wilson Elementary we are a school family, and we take pride in our school culture and character development.  We are excited that Omegaman was able to teach our kids and reinforced great choices," said Allison Whitcomb, third grade teacher at Wilson.

Parents enjoyed experiencing the fun-filled message of character education, motivation, inspiration and hope with their child. Through this assembly, students learned how to identify, respond, and prevent bullying in their school, to make sure every student is a H.E.R.O. – Helping Everyone Respect Others.
