A Rock Island Junior High Anti-Bulling Skit is going on the road……
(Rock Island) 17 members of Washington Middle School are heading to Tinley Park, Illinois this Thursday, April 19th to perform the “Stomp Out Bullying” play to 400 educators. The WJHS Drama Team received state-wide attention for their play when it was featured in an Illinois State Board of Education newsletter last month…and was asked to perform the skit to members attending the 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant Conference.
The Drama Team is funded through the Lights ON Community Learning Grant and Site Coordinator, Kristie Sullivan, says showcasing what her students can do may inspire other afterschool programs to create drama teams. She and the students are excited to “hit the road” and get the message out that bullying is wrong and should not be tolerated. The show was written by the students and the drama teacher, Deb Halstead.
Members of the media will get a “sneak preview” of the play on Wednesday, April 18th at 3:00 pm in the school gym. The students, Site Coordinator and Drama Team Advisor will be available for interviews.
