SHERBURNE – Fourth graders at Sherburne-Earlville identified a problem in their school this year, and the active students refuse to take the issue lying down. On Monday night, a group addressed the school board about the issue of bullying.
A group of fourth grade students organized earlier in the school year around the slogan “S-E stops bullying together.” The 18 students in Mrs. Johnson’s class identified bullying as an issue and are taking steps to prevent it. According to the parent of one student in the class, the idea for the group came after one of the students in the class was the victim of bullying on the playground. The class began discussing the problem and how they could help each other.
