Handles Franklin, Harlem Globe Trotter, Visits Laketown

December 1, 2017

Laketown was fortunate enough to be one of the schools chosen to host a visit from Harlem Globetrotter, Handles Franklin, earlier this month.  Mr. Franklin presented an assembly to all students, “The ABCs of Bullying Prevention”.  It was designed in coordination with the National Campaign to Stop Violence to help reduce bullying and violence among youth in our schools and communities. The program – focused on Action, Bravery, and Compassion the ABCs There was a lot of audience participation and students and staff really enjoyed the program.
