Ms. Mannino from Philadelphia PA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bullying - Anything but a Fairytale

My students need 120 tickets to view the film "Bully" at a local AMC theater.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Bullying is a widespread and serious problem that can happen anywhere. It is not a phase children have to go through, it is not "just messing around" and it is not something we just grow out of. Bullying can cause serious and lasting harm. I would like my students to view this film, "Bully".

My community of students are 98% Puerto Rican and live in a very low economic area.

In this area, bullying is prevalent because of gangs and other outside sources. The school is bi-lingual which helps students keep up with both languages to help them in the future to communicate with both American and Spanish speaking cultures.

My Project

Bullying takes place within a larger social context comprised of the relationships among students, teachers, administrators, and staff of the school as well as the members of the larger community. These relationships contribute to the culture of the school and set the stage for the degree to which bullying situations are tolerated or taken on. The film can help bring the students together and see how one school in Texas can help prevent bullying after a tragic suicide in another school. Suicide has been prevalent in our school community this year unfortunately.

The students in this school are surrounded by gangs and violent behavior.

If we get funded, the students will get to see different types of bullying, how we can change our community in and out of the classroom and how to make better lifestyle choices to help better themselves and others around them.
