Junior high students in the Chester Grade School "Froggy and Friends" program taught a Character Education lesson on bullying to Alisa Herrell's second grade class on Jan. 28.

The Froggy and Friends program goes into the three second grade classrooms once each month to teach a new character education lesson.

The program is coordinated by Cindy Ponder, school social worker from the Perandoe Special Education District, and assisted by Jim Beers.
