Bully Nots Show That It's Not Cool to be a Bully

Posted: Updated:

Bullies are not cool at Jackson Via Elementary School in Charlottesville. The Bully Nots, a student-led group at the school, took the stage Friday to show bullying is not okay through singing, dancing and acting.

Bully Nots is part of a school wide effort that started four years ago. The group is led by school counselor, Kristin Ullrich.

"They give up their lunch, they give up their recess to help practice these skits to help learn the songs and dances so we can show kids that bullying is not okay," said Ullrich. 

The Bully Nots perform at schools around the area to show kids around central Virginia that they don't bully and others shouldn't either.
