Cuero students take bullying into their own hands

Cuero Studetns Take Bullying Into Their Own HandsLike most great schemes in middle school, this one was conjured up at the lunch table.

A group of sixth-grade students at Cuero Junior High School, discussing their own experiences with bullying, wanted to help younger kids avoid some of the perils they had gone through.

They settled on adapting a comic written by classmate Allison Spitzenberger into a play for third-graders called "The Adventures of Bob."

"I wanted to write the play because there’s a lot of bullying happening around the world, and I wanted to put a stop to it," Allison, 11, said.

The play is just one of the ways Cuero students are making the school’s emphasis on bullying prevention their own personal missions.
