Mr. Quintanilla from Christi TX is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Bully Project

My students need funding to see the movie BULLY during A Week Without Violence.

  • $3,320 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our school district has been focusing on reducing incidents of bullying. A neighboring district had a student commit suicide due to bullying; therefore, the community is on high alert. I would like for my students to see the causes and effects of bullying so that they can reflect on their actions.

My students are from a Title 1 campus.

The population consists of lower economic/at-risk students. They are all in the 8th grade and at least 13 years old. Many students are even older which means they have been retained. They are students who have the potential to lead others, even if they are still unaware of it. It is my hope that they will lead others to design a plan to end bullying.

My Project

This is going to be an opportunity to bring students from 12 campuses together to watch the Bully documentary to inspire them to move towards change. Although they are aware of the term "bullying," this will be a chance to give them a greater understanding of the causes and effects that relate to bullying and be agents of change. The whole community is excited about this possibility.

Students who may feel overlooked are going to have the opportunity to experience something that has never been done in our district.

It will show our students that it is okay to take a stand against the injustice of bullying. Many times when documentaries such as The Bully movie open in theaters, they aren't shown in our community. This project would ensure that my students get an opportunity they would not get anywhere else.
