Assembly Programs on Bias, Bullying & Bystanders
Elementary School: Grades K-5
"Sooz gave two very different grade-appropriate presentations--one for younger students and one for older. Both were perfectly developmentally appropriate and engaging. Her rapport with kids of all ages was extraordinary. Her songs were well-written, fun, easy to learn and sing, with powerful messages that students need to stand up for themselves and each other. A wonderful experience!"
