Students learn a valuable lesson about bullying

FAIR OAKS, CA - Students at Will Rogers Middle school learned a valuable lesson about bullying during assemblies Wednesday.

Middle school students attended "We Care Assemblies" during their physical education classes. Through group sessions, role-play, and a skit, the students learned how to make positive choices and take action against bullying.

"We're just trying to be proactive. A lot of things are going on in the country as we know and we want to empower our children to know how to make right decisions at the right time," said principal Gloria Ervin.

The school will hold other anti-bullying assemblies throughout the year.
