Farmingdale Students Stand Up to Bullying

Albany Avenue Elementary students participate in musical assembly.

The Farmingdale School District’s Albany Avenue Elementary School students recently attended an anti-bullying assembly featuring a special performance by the nationally acclaimed anti-bullying performer, Lyle Cogen.

Cogen performed her renowned Sticks and Stones interactive rap for the Albany Avenue students, which incorporates theater and music to educate children how to recognize and avoid bullying behaviors.

The musical rendition is based on the experiences and writings of Long Island school children of all ages.

It is good to know that there are lots of student are now comping up to stand against bullying this would give parents as well as students knowledge about bullying signs. As a parent, I have been aware of these bullying issues in schools around the state and I don't want my kids to be victims of such or worse potential bullies. So I worry about their safety every now and then. Thanks to my friend who introduce me this mobile-based application. This application is a silent alarm called the "panic button" that alerts a monitoring center so police will be dispatched to the exact location immediately. The selected family and trusted friends is automatically alerted via text, e-mail and phone call. Very amazing application. Check this out: https://safekidzone.com/
