CLARKSVILLE — Clinton-Massie Elementary School recently invited Choosy Suzy and her magical confidant Zucchini the Genie to speak with K-8 students and their parents as part of an anti-bullying campaign. It encourages audience members to choose the Six Pillars of Character — trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship — as a road map to becoming their personal best.

Choosy Suzy and Zucchini the Genie challenged the audience to think clearly and carefully about how they treat others. They shared power words that audience members could use to stop the cycle of name-calling and bullying.

While there was much laughter as Choosy Suzy and Zucchini the Genie used magic comedy, colorful props, and total audience involvement, the message was clear: By working together, “You can make your school a BULLY FREE ZONE!”

The event was sponsored by the CMES parent-teacher organization.
