Puppets With A Purpose

CLARK — Arthur L. Johnson High School’s Puppetry Club paid a visit to Valley Road School to teach the students about bullying. With the hand-held puppets serving as the actors, the puppeteers used a variety of role-played skits to illustrate to the audience the many different forms of bullying. Children were made aware that simple acts, such as excluding a child from a play group or preventing him from sitting at the same lunch table, is actually bullying.  The children were taught some important ways to keep from becoming a bully, how to deal with bullies directly and how to report a bully to a grown-up. Shown are the members of the puppetry club along with their teacher, Brian Klimchak; Sarah Badillo, Guidance Counselor for VRS School; Lisa Dunn, the content area supervisor for English and art; and some VRS students.
