A Window in My Heart: A Story About Bullying
In this bullying assembly, using music, singing and storytelling Alden Phelps tells tale of a child who gets bullied at school, and how he stops it, with help from students and adults. The story is narrated by a man who has the unique job of school custodian on an intergalactic spaceship! All the child characters are fanciful blue aliens, emphasizing the fact that no matter what we look like on the outside, we’re all the same inside.
