COPING WITH BULLYING
Most often associated with helping adults improve physical assets, “The Biggest Loser” trainer Brett Hoebel visited Casmir Pulaski School to encourage students to develop their inner strength. The celebrity’s appearance supported the District’s ongoing anti-bullying initiatives and the school’s International Baccalaureate Primary Years fifth grade project, which invites students to research, reflect and act.
“This is such a great program,” explained Pulaski Principal Brian Curtis. “Bullying is such a confidence issue, and being confident about who are you is part of Mr. Hoebel’s message.”
