Our kids are back to school – and as parents, we worry when they’re not around. Across the country, many students, parents, and educators are concerned about bullying. Bullies can make kids – and adults – feel weak.
But often, kids can surprise and inspire us with their strength, their passion, and their creativity.
To honor the memory of their classmate, John Sullivan, a team of middle school students at Kirk Middle School created “If You Really Knew Kirk.” Working together, the students created a program for their peers that confronted four issues: grief, acceptance, family and bullying. You can learn more about John and his classmates here.
Now the students have come together again to tell their story by video.
