Bullying takes flight

Holley School Counselor Terry Augustadt records video of the words written on students’ paper airplanes on Nov. 2. As part of the school’s efforts to curb bullying, students wrote down a word they associated with bullying on a piece of paper, which they would then fold into a paper airplane. The students gathered in the Holley School yard and formed a circle to throw the airplanes, to throw away “the words that hurt.”

Students then picked up a paper airplane and held it up to show Augustadt what word had been written on the airplane.
