NVMS students enjoy TapRoot production

Nooksack Valley Middle School took a theatric approach to discussing relevant social issues with students. Through the performance by TapRoot, dubbed “The Social Networth,” the production addressed relevant social issues and provided the middle school youth with “safe steps on how to approach them,” says Maryann Holbrook, school counselor.

The educational goal of the performance was cyberbullying prevention, understanding the consequences of harassment, personal and social responsibility and the value of positive body image.

The following day students discussed questions relevant to the theater-based assembly with peers during advisory class, keeping the focus on a thoughtful approach to social issues by the students at Nooksack Valley Middle Schools.
