In the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Radez Elementary students attended an assembly featuring Jared Campbell’s Blue Project, a presentation that uses song and humor to talk about bullying prevention, overcoming obstacles and treating one another with respect.
“If you’ve ever been bullied, I want you to understand that nothing anyone can ever say to you – to your face, to someone else, or on social media – changes your value as a person,” Campbell told enthralled third-through-fifth graders on Friday, Jan. 16.
Through original songs and humorous life stories, Campbell encouraged the students to believe in their self-worth, work hard to change the world, and understand that meaningful change happens one step at a time.
“The number one way we end bullying in our schools is to decide that Radez, as one big family, is going to stand up to it,” Campbell said.
