r Did you know cowboys think reading is important and that bullying is no good? The Champion Cowboys visited all the elementary schools in Spanish Fork and the junior high schools across Nebo School District recently where they entertained students with powerful messages.

JJ Harrison, Joe Butler, the Fiesta Days Rodeo Queens, Spanish Fork Police officers and city officials delighted students in a robust reading assembly with the theme, “Don’t be a Bull-y! Be a Champion!”

Rodeo clown JJ Harrison and bullfighter Joe Butler don’t kid around when it comes to bullying. JJ taught students how to “buck bullies out of their lives” and to be a Bull-y Blocker. There is a difference between bullying and simple teasing. Bullying is repeated aggressive behavior with an imbalance of power. He offered five steps students could take to ensure they are not acting like bullies.r

    r

  1. Treat others the way you want to be treated.r2. Be courteous and polite.r3. Listen to what others have to say.r4. Don’t insult people, make fun of them or call them names.r5. Don’t judge people before you get to know them.

rBut what should someone do if they think they are being bullied? TELL! Tell someone — anyone — everyone until they get the help they need. Students can go to teachers, counselors or any person in the administrative office with their concerns.

Harrison’s and Butler’s second message was, “It’s important to read!” Students that met their reading goal for the month of March got his or her name in a drawing where one student from each grade will receive two tickets to attend the rodeo. Out of those students, two lucky students will be drawn to receive a pair of Justin boots. All of the winners will get to meet real rodeo cowboys.

Harrison showed off his rodeo skills by roping various teachers and administrators. Come and watch more cowboy skills at The Champion Challenge Rodeo to be held on June 4 at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds. Get your tickets now at www.spanishfork.org.
