An assembly by Midwest School Shows entitled “Upstanders Rock!” visited Immaculate Conception School recently with a wonderful presentation on positivity and kindness. “Upstanders Rock” was a high energy and interactive assembly that helps students understands that they have a responsibility to be Upstanders (not bystanders) in their school.
The students quickly understood this will help keep their school safe and bully-free. Students were invited to dress up as adults in a demonstration about reporting bullying to an adult they trust. The kids also created a larger than life video game on stage to illustrate life is not like a video game, and there are no do-overs.
Students were challenged to get rid things in their school like spreading gossip, teasing, and leaving someone out. Kindness is a prominent theme in the hallways of ICS. The school has made a true commitment to spread compassion and positivity to all they encounter.
