The Summit Lane Get A Voice Program is in full swing. Each month an activity or assembly is planned and implemented by the staff. January’s activity included watching a video made by an elementary school upstate. Afterwards, the children answered follow up questions. During Literacy Center that week, each class brainstormed anti-bullying phrases and created their own anti-bullying posters. Pictures were taken of every child and poster. Finally, the pictures were converted into our very own Summit Lane video.
February’s Get A Voice assembly included a skit performed by members of Summit Lane’s Student Council. The students acted out the book One
by Kathryn Otoshi. The book focuses on being the ONE to step up and help someone that is being bullied. After the skit, the Summit Lane Anti-Bullying Video was debuted. The children sang along to the music, clapped and were delighted to see themselves and their friends. The children and staff were thrilled to see the product of their hard work. Students were reminded to be a leader, make a difference and to Get A Voice!
