Students at Browning Elementary got a welcome break from the normal routine last week as their teachers and administrators donned superhero garments to present a series of activities aimed at reducing bullying in their school. Principal Sheila Hall noted the students themselves had complained about bullying, which led her staff to plan the day’s activities.

Blackfeet Manpower engaged to participate in the event, and representatives from Blackfeet Law Enforcement Services and the Browning Volunteer Fire Department contributed their expertise as well. Stations were set up around the gym at the “old high school” where students created cookies, learned about the “three Rs,” played indoor Nerf softball and learned about the gear firefighters wear to keep them protected while doing their jobs. Students also got to dress up as superheroes themselves and have their pictures taken against a comic-book background.

The entire activity was geared toward students signing an anti-bullying pledge while enjoying a variety of educational, artistic and physical events.
