Lake Zurich South students began a campaign to stomp out bullying. Student authors published a book, You Are Not Invisible; it features fictional stories written through the lens of the bully, the bystander, or the victim. Through the inspiration of each story, those who contributed hope that soon the bystander becomes the up-stander, the victim transforms into the victor, and a bully matures into a protector and a promoter. Change is the answer; Kindness is the catalyst.
The mission to inspire continues. We have decided to donate all proceeds from the book to the Anthony Rizzo Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to raise money for cancer research and to provide support for children and their families battling cancer. Through the support we receive, we remind those fighting the cancer that they too are not alone, they too are Not Invisible.
To continue our quest, South's student council is organizing a dodgeball tournament. The tournament is the next step in our campaign to will help raise awareness about bullying, fight cancer, with the ultimate goal of making the world a better place.
