Piedmont students unite to make video

 Last week was National Anti-Bullying week. So, naturally, we decided to do it up Piedmont style. We have started each day with an anti-bullying video by the drama club followed up each afternoon with activities in E-block. The faculty decided that we really needed to get the students drawn into this to really start discussions. So, we decided to create a video based on Sara Bareilles' song "Brave." This is an incredibly inspiring song telling the listeners to be brave and honest. We asked students to think about this in respect to bullying. They created posters and started discussions about what it meant to them to be "Brave." On Wednesday, the entire school filed into their positions and we filmed a lip-synched version of the hit song. The result was a unifiying event for all of Piedmont and a great way to stand up and speak out against bullying. Here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lB3de9lf3Sg
