TROY, N.Y. -- Students at Caroll Hill School in Troy took a stand against bullying on Tuesday.
Thanks to some help from the Tri-City ValleyCats, and the Kiwanis K-Kids Club, students in kindergarten through fifth grade took an anti-bullying pledge during the annual Anti-Bullying Day event.
Faculty, students, and staff wore t-shirts displaying a message from Nelson Mandela about the importance of treating others with love and respect.
One teacher said educating kids about the importance of not bullying is crucial.
"I think they learn a lot from it because actually they're doing a skit and it's showing what bullying looks like and how they can come together despite their differences," explained Tenika Wilcoz, a teacher.
Tuesday marked the third annual Anti-Bullying Day.
