Gallo Center brings anti-bullying message to Sinclear
Bullying is a serious issue across the nation and in an attempt to educate students about its ramifications, Sinclear Elementary School hosted a Bullying Prevention Performance on Monday.

Two performances of the 50-minute one-act play, "The Boy Who Cried Bully" was offered to the students. The play was both entertaining and informative to the audiences of Sinclear students.

The $1,500 cost of the two performances was underwritten by the Stanislaus County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services.

The play involved Nate, a typical third-grader with a love for telling tall tales. His biggest problem is Sam, a fifth-grade bully who has it in for him and his friends, Bob the Bully-Buster visits to teach Nate's class what they can do to identify and prevent bullying in school. Based on the classic Aesop's fable, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," the honest, funny and engaging production looked at stretching truths and accepting differences.
