Students Take Part In Anti-Bullying Campaign


With their hands in the paint and pressing on the canvas, Dexter Elementary School students are encouraging people to "Say Yes To Nice" by painting this collage.

"It's important to be nice cause if you are mean to people, they'll be mean back to you and that doesn't feel good," said student Olivia Eves.

To help people feel good, Dexter Elementary School and Dexter Free Library are launching their anti-bullying campaign "Say Yes To Nice."

The program also features community book projects and monthly assemblies at the school.

"We rather say to kids, 'Hey, you have a choice and you can help this community be a positive place by what you do," said  Jen Thomas, library director.

Kids say with just a little bit of paint they can leave their mark in saying yes to nice and teaching the power of courtesy and respect. 

The anti bullying message was delivered loud and strong as students' "Say Yes to Nice" collage was revealed at an afternoon assembly.

Organizers say the program will last through the rest of the year.
