Village Academy AVID students performed a musical about bullying and its effects – on February 9th in the school cafeteria. As one of seven schools staging the show that night, the 27 student performers presented “The Weight of Words” production to a crowd of 90 people – parents, youth, and community supporters. Raw accounts of bullying and the implications on an individual’s mental health were covered from all perspectives – the ones whom are bullied, the bullies themselves, family, bystanders, school staff, and community leaders. Following a standing ovation, performers and their families gathered for a family dinner hosted by Healthier Delray Beach. At the dinner, students discussed the tremendous performance with family members and shared what they will do with the weight of their words.
