FORT JENNINGS — Ft. Jennings Elementary students attended a captivating assembly given by the Saltworks Theatre Company entitled “Stand Up”, which is aimed at addressing, reducing, and preventing bullying. The ensemble presented a highly energetic and interactive play which follows the lives of five high school kids, three bullies, the target and the bystander, through real life scenarios affecting school children everyday everywhere.

Stand Up helps students achieve better peer pressure relations and is written to be a supplement to any bully prevention program in use. The professional, dramatic production teaches students to treat others the way they would want to be treated.
