Older Students Help a 6th Grade Boy Overcome Bullying and Exclusion

During today’s lesson we are going to look at a case of bullying in Colorado and what some upperclassman, meaning older high school students, did to stop it right in its tracks. It all started when 6th grader Brody Ridder came home from school near the end of last year, and his mom discovered that most of Brody’s classmates were trying to exclude him by refusing to sign his yearbook. A couple of teachers signed his yearbook, but besides that, he was left to sign his own yearbook. He wrote a note to himself that said, “Hope you make some more friends (next year)” -Brody. Fortunately, that sad note is not the end of this story. There were some heroes, and better days to come.
