Students at Fisher Elementary School in Arlington were treated to a performance this week that promoted bullying awareness and offered solutions to students who might be bullied currently.

TIGER (Theatre Integrating Guidance, Education, and Responsibility), a five-person educational theater company based out of New Hampshire visited the school to perform a one-hour musical skit for kindergarten through fifth-graders on anti-bullying education Thursday morning, called, "Bully Free, You and Me."

According to Fisher Elementary School Counselor Tristina McDonald, the group has visited the school once a year for the past four years, each year focusing on a different theme.

Other programs offered by TIGER include one called, "Just Between Friends," which teaches students the ABCs of being a good friend, and "Let Your Star Shine," which promotes self-esteem.
