A. B. Zone
Anti-bullying movie filmed in New Caney addresses growing problem in schools
Experts say early intervention is key to fighting this growing problem – and that’s the goal of a new movie that was filmed in New Caney and could be heading to a school near you.
Bullying can have serious consequences.
Kaelynn Wright, a 2nd-grader who was bullied at Valley Ranch Elementary, suffered stress-related stomach problems and ended up missing 28 days of school.
Truancy charges were filed, but dropped, after her mother showed the judge Wright’s medical records.
The school summoned the bullies and their parents to address the problem last year. Then, they took the fight to the big screen.
Two New Caney ISD campuses helped film the “A.B. Zone,” which stands for “anti-bullying.”
Producer Jaquay Young said they’re targeting grade- and middle-school students.
The movie gives typical bullying scenarios and solutions that kids can understand.
