WTRF is Encouraging Students to “Be a Buddy not a Bully”

WTRF News Anchor Tessa DiTirro asks WLES kindergarten students what it means to be a buddy.

WTRF 7News is once again teaming up with Bordas and Bordas to teach students to “Be a buddy, not a Bully.”

Tuesday morning our Buddy at WTRF, Tessa DiTirro, visited with students at Washington Lands Elementary School to teach them the importance of being nice to all of their classmates, and the proper way to deal with bullying, if they’re being bullied or see someone else being bullied.

Kindergarten and first grade students took the “Be a Buddy, not a Bully” pledge.  Each student received a sticker and bookmark from Ditirro.

The goal of the visit was to help educate students on the awful impacts bullying can have.
