Photo Gallery: Schulte School's 'Be a Hero, Not a Bully' Parade

The whole school turned out in specially decorated Defender Masks with real-life heroes from South Shore Fire and the Sturtevant Police Departments for an anti-bullying parade.

Schulte Elementary School in Sturtevant has focused all year on what being a hero means. Part of that curriculum includes messages on being a friend and not being a bully.

Students, teachers, staff and parents turned out for a year-end parade with real-life heroes from the South Shore Fire and Sturtevant Police Departments.

Carrying signs that declared Schulte a bully-free zone and touting their hero status, students and teachers wore masks they'd decorated themselves.

"These are their Defender Masks," teacher Linda Haas said. "Being a defender means standing up for one another, including kids in play or homework help and respecting and accepting differences."

This is my daughters class. I had fun walking with the school. They should do this next year. Maybe we could get the neighborhood involved also.

What a great event and a fantastic way to spread the message about bullying in school. Great job Schulte teachers, students and the fire department!

Great idea. It is encouraging to see this type of awareness in place. My granddaughter is Isabella Mignacca and we are so very proud of her participation. Helen and Tibor Torok, Pa.

I really like how the parade turned out. I think this needs to be an annual event with even more community and neighborhood participation.
