During a recent performance at the school, Campbell encouraged all Granby Elementary students and staff members to join together to create a powerful anti-bullying environment.

United as one, friendship will blossom and self-esteem will soar.

To help spread that message, Campbell told students in grades kindergarten through second that hands are to help, not to hurt.

His main message for students in grades three through six was to become a world changer by following three simple steps: believe that life is valuable, work hard and to look out for others.

He sang several songs related to the school’s character education initiative, including respect and responsibility.

Students performed air guitar solos as they sang along to songs about being superheroes and good citizens.
