If you see something...

A troupe of drama students from Beaufort High School is attracting growing numbers of fans who support the group’s anti-bullying show, and elementary and middle school students from across the district recently were able to see that performance.  “United Against Bullying" is a collection of dramatic sketches aimed at getting students to intervene or contact responsible adults when they witness their fellow students being bullied (“If you see something, say something!”).  Local Rotary clubs have helped to sponsor the drama group’s performances, including one at last spring’s Zone 33 Rotary Peace Symposium in North Carolina.   The group also performed last spring at a Rotary conference in Myrtle Beach, where the students participated in a question-and-answer session and discussed ways in which the show might serve as a model for statewide Rotary programs.  At the recent performances in Beaufort County, the Rotary Club of the Lowcountry provided students with bookmarks and pencils.  Both contain the district's toll-free anti-bullying hotline numbers, 843-322-2435 or 866-611-1102. Students can also email bcsdbullyinghotline@beaufort.k12.sc.us.  The drama director at Beaufort High is LaRaine Fess.
