Anti-Bullying Program!

Breaking Down the Walls With Laughter     

A Fun Interactive Assembly Program!     

A Hilarious Way to Discourage Bullying!

  • Designed Specifically for Grades K-6  
  • Bridges the Distance between Students
  •  Brings Students, Teachers, and Administrators all Closer Together

There’s no social hierarchy when we laugh—we’re all on the same level.   Teachers (& administrators!) who laugh with their students will create a closer bond with them allowing better and more open communication.  By dropping many of their inhibitions students will also be more likely and willing to participate in classroom activities.

*Relieves Stress!        *Builds Empathy for Others        *Boosts the Immune System

*Fosters Positive Connections & Good feelings   *Light Aerobic Exercise


* Mark Sherry, M.Ed, M.A, B.A, former teacher and school administrator, Certified Laughter Leader and
Laughter Yoga Instructor will be your presenter/facilitator for 40-45 minutes of Fun & Laughter!

* Proven Experience: I have over 14 years experience performing auditorium shows to elementary school
students all over Massachusetts and Connecticut (as a former “Mad Scientist!”)

The Program:

  1. We’ll gather in the gym, outdoors, or in any room with an open area.  We’ll play simple, fun, interactive Laughter Games.  Students are encouraged to directly interact with everyone around them—including students they don’t know very well.
  2. After sharing laughter with all their schoolmates students are led to recognize this fundamental positive experience as one of many things they all share.  I focus them on the connections between them—and to realize that these are far more important than their differences.  The goal is to build empathy among all students so the motivation to bully others is greatly reduced.

Just some of the Benefits of Laughter (as cited by recent medical research)

  • Reduces Stress: reduces the levels of the stress hormone Cortisol in the blood
  • Boosts the immune system by increased production of T-Cells to help us fight infection & protect us from serious diseases
  • Makes us feel good by causing the release of Endorphins which are the body’s “feel-good” hormones and its natural painkillers; and by defusing three of the most painful emotions (fear, anger and boredom) by releasing them. That release, in turn, can prevent or stop conflicts, ease tension, and help people to see one another’s point of view.
  • Boosts stamina and overall health by increasing the oxygen supply to your cells
