This Modern, 21st-Century Anti-Bullying School Assembly Teaches Students How To Be A H.E.R.O.!
School assembly programs on the subject of bully prevention and cyber-bullying in the 21st century are critical to helping victimized children realize that there IS hope and that they do not have to suffer. Cris Johnson offers an amazing school assembly bully prevention program that tackles the issue of bullying head on by encouraging students to treat each other with respect, as well as exploring the idea of diversity and the fact that we are all different…and why that’s a GOOD thing. Most importantly, Cris gives students an easy-to-remember H.E.R.O. action plan on what to do if they witness (or are the victim of) bullying behavior. Because ‘bullying’ is so misunderstood, Cris also clarifies 5 different forms of bullying and also spotlights cyber-bullying and the fact that once something is online, it stays there forever, so use the internet cautiously!
This Bullying Prevention Program Stresses That We All Need To Work Together!
Additionally, this bullying assembly program stresses the fact that we all need to look out for each other…in other words, if you see someone being bullied, get involved! Get help for the person being bullied! In other words, one of the keystones of this presentation is the fact that bystanders need to get involved and get help for fellow students being victimized. Key Learning Points:
- Five different bullying behaviors are identified and discussed
- How to identify bullies
- How working together lessons bullying
- Don’t just be a bystander…how you can use the acronym H.E.R.O. and help others!
- If you need it, ask for help from a trusted adult!
- There is a heavy emphasis on the word RESPECT and DIVERSITY.

We were all very pleased with the show that you put on. You and I spoke that day at the end of each performance, but I wanted to let you know a few specific things I received in terms of feedback. First, we probably could have helped out a little better by dividing the kids into lower and upper grades. However, your messages and magic tricks were appropriate for all and played to all grade levels. I saw just as many fifth graders amazed by the magic and jumping out of their sitting positions to volunteer as I did kindergarten and first graders. Feedback from all grade levels was equally positive. We liked that the show was interactive and helped make the general audience, as well as specific students, a part of the performance. Furthermore, your messages and main themes were all clearly explained and to the point. Students came away from the performance understanding what it means to be a “HERO” and how they can help those being bullied or handle it if it happened to them. I can actually say I’ve used a few of the points you made since I saw the show (making sure to tell an adult, asking the other person to stop) in dealing with interactions and issues between students. Finally, we have laminated and proudly displayed “Sketchy” in a few spots around the school as a reminder of the show!
From an administrative viewpoint, we appreciated how easy you were to work with and the ease of setting up and breaking down the show. It allowed us to focus on managing the flow of students and getting the shows started promptly.
Thank you for a quality performance and for bringing much happiness to our students that day and the days to follow.
We would definitely be interested in trying to bring you in for another show in the future.
