Tryon Elementary School students and parents were welcomed to school Tuesday by teachers and staff moving and grooving to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” helping kick off the start of Anti-Bullying Month.

Students were reminded that it’s okay to “shake off” bad times throughout the day and that teachers and staff are always available to help assist students who are in need of a pick-me-up.

TES students will have opportunities through classroom guidance and special activities during October to discuss ways to ensure Tryon Elementary remains a bully-free zone.
