Students at Jackson-Via Elementary School participated in its annual Bully Nots assembly Wednesday.

Fourth grade students used their creative talents to spread an anti-bullying message through songs, dance acts, and skits.

The goal of the program is to encourage students to treat others the way they want to be treated and working together to build a strong community within the school and the city.

"I think what makes Bully Nots unique is that it's students spreading the message to be kind, to be inclusive to be respectful. Giving students the opportunity to use creative talents to spread those messages. Very few other programs actually brings kids together with songs dance and skits that they've created in order to impact their peers and that's what the Bully Nots program does", said Kristen Ullrich, a school counselor.

All students attending Jackson-Via Elementary are considered Bully Nots in training.
