Two Spotsylvania elementary schools launch anti-bullying program

Cedar Forest and Riverview elementary schools have kicked off a new anti-bullying program their principals hope will help children throughout their lives and schooling.

The results of a community survey prompted Cedar Forest Principal David Strawn  to find a program.

Part of the program includes weekly meetings in each classroom where teachers and students discuss various topics related to bullying.

I sat in on a recent session in the class of third grade teacher Christie Hall.

Look for a story soon in the Free Lance-Star on anti-bullying programs in the Fredericksburg region’s schools.

In the meantime, you can listen to students sing the school’s bully-free chant.
