Students participate in “No One Eats Alone” for Anti-Bullying event

Local News

Louisiana Healthcare Connections and Beyond Differences have joined forces with Capitol Elementary School to host a lunch event for more than 100 students.

These efforts are to focus on bullying, prevention, and the promotion of a positive environment when class is in session.

“This is a group that will be going to middle school very soon,” said Chelsea Braves with the Louisiana Healthcare Connections. “We want to be able to plant seeds of the inclusion and [embrace] differences with this group.”

The two hour event had a lot of activities for students to do.

The 4th and 5th graders had the chance to discuss why individuals may feel left out.

“Today is about not leaving kids out and treating them with respect,” said Melanie Johnson, a 4th grader at Capitol Elementary School.

The soon-to-be middle schoolers were served turkey sandwiches as they got to learn more about their classmates for the finale of “No one eats alone” event.
