AG Biden visits The Jefferson School to kick off anti-bullying campaign
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden visited The Jefferson School Sept. 19 to help kick off the school year’s anti-bullying campaign.
Biden spoke to the entire student body, preschool through eighth grade, in a relaxed question-and-answer forum. The students answered many questions on the subject of bullying and asked even more. The attorney general has spoken to more than 20,000 Delaware school children about how to stay safe online and the dangers of bullying since taking office in 2007.
Becky Breasure, TJS’s educational specialist, reminisced with Biden about his formative years in Wilmington, when she baby-sat for him. Third-grade student Dassi Shortridge-Pitzer presented Biden with a poem she had written about Bo, President Barack Obama’s dog. Biden offered to pass it along to his father, Vice President Joe Biden, in hopes that the president might enjoy reading it.
The Jefferson School is located on 43 wooded acres in Georgetown and strives to provide innovative academic programs that foster an enthusiasm for learning.
