Martin County School District Set to Bring Powerful,
Anti-Bullying Musical Experience to Middle and High Schools
In alignment with its efforts to provide a safe, supportive and inclusive learning environment for all students, the Martin County School District is pleased to announce an upcoming campaign for middle and high schools: Speak Life End Bullying the Musical.
Statistics show that millions of students across our nation have been the victims of bullying, and millions more have seen the toll it takes on the mental and physical health of a friend or loved one. Speak Life End Bullying the Musical is a film conveying messages which empower action beyond awareness to awaken empathy, ignite hope and inspire change. In the Musical, students see their classmates, their friends and even themselves – they see the impact it has on their own lives.
This film provides students with a unique awareness and contemplation of themes such as identity, vulnerability, pain, internal and external pressure, and emotional processing.
Students will view Speak Life End Bullying the Musical according to the schedule printed below. After screening the film, schools will implement a series of lessons - aligned with resources approved by the Florida Department of Education's Office of Safe Schools - to explore and further analyze its themes.
