Studies compiled by ABC show that 30 percent of all students are either bullies or the victim of bullying. The same study said more than 160,000 students stay home from school every day due to fear. Possibly the most shocking of all these stats, however, is that 10 to 14 percent of all suicides between the ages of 10 and 14 are linked to some form of bullying. October is National Anti-Bullying Month and, to that effect, Osceola Elementary School hosted two actors from CLIMB Theatre in Inver Grove Heights to perform skits meant to educate youth on the dangers of bullying.

Dan Kroes and Leigh Yenrick have only been on the road with CLIMB Theatre for six short weeks, but already their routine is polished to the point of being able to keep the attention of even the most disruptive of students.
