NORTHWOOD, Iowa — Folks in our area are looking to spread the word to help that growing problem of bullying.

Northwood-Kensett Community Schools will be hosting a “Bully” movie event in September.

David and Tina Long, parents featured in the movie “Bully”, will be teaching students about being positive leaders and to try to eliminate bullying from schools.

They hope it helps reach out to students, faculty members and especially parents.

“Expanding it and including the parents because the parents are that critical third piece of the puzzle,” Northwood-Kensett Social Studies Teacher Monte DeArmoun said. “You have students, the school and then the parents and with increased participation among everybody, hoping to decrease the number of occurrences of bullying.”

Students and families from all over northern Iowa are invited to attend a screening of “Bully” at 7 p.m. at the NIACC Auditorium in Mason City on the 18th.

It will include a discussion with the longs and a panel of experts.
