CAPS Off for Bullying Prevention

Fourth-graders at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School participated in a two-session multimedia workshop designed to promote empathy and build social skills and assertiveness when interacting with classmates and dealing with conflict resolution.

Child Abuse Prevention Services, a nonprofit organization, presented the program in recognition of National Bullying Prevention Month. During the lessons, CAPS representatives engaged the students in discussions and stories aimed at teaching kids to steer clear of bullying. In addition to hands-on activities, the presenters used the classroom Smart Boards and played an anti-bullying DVD for the fourth-grade classes.
