Elsa Elementary School Recognized for Anti-Bullying Campaign

Local News

The Second Grade students at Lyndon B. Johnson Elementary in Elsa are recognized for their stance against bullying. Students are selected as part of an HEB initiative to reach out to young kids with messages that keeps kids away from harassment. Nominations were done by school teachers all year long for students who demonstrated positive traits and behavior.

“Kids, they understand what bullying is and even though they are second graders, they’ve also succumbed to bullying in one form or fashion. They’ve either observed it, or they’ve been a victim of it. And for us it really important that we start young with those messages of kindness, respect, courage, leadership and inclusiveness.”

The Elsa school is the first selected from many statewide entries. This program is said to be an attempt to promote kindness and respect over teasing and exclusion.
