It started with Lindbergh Schweitzer students walking to Madison High School in January to exchange a banner to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s message of peace entitled "Let it Begin With Me."
The next step
was taken in April when the ILEAD Team from Madison High School gave a
presentation about bullying to the Lindbergh Schweitzer Elementary fifth
and sixth graders, and demonstrated ways students can empower
themselves against bullies on campus.
Another step was taken on
May 29 when Lindbergh/Schweitzer student government leaders were
welcomed by the counterparts at nearby Innovation Middle School as they
continue to move their anti-bullying message forward by sharing their
"Let it Begin With Me" banner for students to sign and make a pledge.
is the hope of the students at Lindbergh Schweitzer that the banner
travel through the Madison Community of Schools as a message of campus
unification against bullying of any kind.

Chantal Bonfond stated that this exchange was a good step in launching a
similar program at their site. This was another successful Service
Learning project begun by the students at Lindbergh Schweitzer.
