Struthers Elementary School

Students get lesson in bullying and kindness

Freddie Seitz speaks with elementary students Freddie Seitz, and his mother, addressed more than 400 Struthers Elementary School students, educating them on individuals with craniofacial differences, bullying and how to be kind in their daily lives.

Seitz’s story is particularly impactful for students thanks to the success of “Wonder,” a popular book by R.J. Palacio about a boy with a craniofacial syndrome and his experiences navigating middle school. The book is frequently included on school reading lists, and a movie based on the book was released last year.

Throughout the presentation, Seitz used sign language to tell stories of being ignored and teased in school, and eventually finding friends and support from his teachers and organizations such as the Children’s Craniofacial Association.

To encourage the students to live the lessons they learned from Seitz and his mother, the school will be implementing a “pay-it-forward” initiative through the use of sky-blue plastic bracelets.
