East Street celebrated the "Kindness is our Superpower" kickoff today. This assembly partners with the Olweus Bullying Prevention program implemented in all Hicksville Public Schools.( The Olweus Bully Prevention Program is a preventative, responsive and research based framework). 
Staff and students were dressed with matching superpower t-shirts to commemorate the event. East Street 5th Grade teacher Scott Starkey, fiction author of the series How to Beat a Bully Without Really Trying, spoke to the students about his experiences writing the books. He had volunteers act out different bullying situations and the best way to handle them. The assembly closed with a school wide sing-a-long  chanting "No Bullies At East Street School" to the tune of "Uptown Funk" by Bruno Mars.
