Summit Lane and Abbey Lane Elementary Schools of the Levittown School District were proud to kick off their first “Get A Voice” rallies on January 7th and January 8th. “Get A Voice” is a language-based character education program developed to address name calling and negative language in schools. Each school had a rally that was a stimulating star-studded event meant to elicit excitement in the students about the program and its values.

At each school the assembly was coordinated by that school’s “Get A Voice” Committee. Each school was pleased to welcome Brimstone, a professional wrestler; Jose Hernandez Jr., from HBO’s Oz; former America’s Next Top Model contestant, Claire Unabia, the NY Dragons arena football player, Jonathan Hamm and Bumblefoot, lead guitarist from Guns N Roses. The celebrity guests spoke to the students about the importance of positive language. Councilman Gary Hughes, Supervisor Kate Murray and Founder of the ‘Get a Voice´ program, Dr. Laurie Mandel, also showed their support to Summit Lane and Abbey Lane Students during the rallies.

Each school committee is planning lessons and events throughout the school year to further implement this meaningful program.
