Sixth Graders Create Anti-Smoking Videos for Health and Wellness Class

As part of the Sixth Grade Health and Wellness program, the boys were tasked with creating their own anti-smoking videos. Working in pairs, the boys researched numerous facts about the negative impact smoking has on one’s life, then decided how they would compile their own public service message to communicate why smoking is bad. Their minute and a half videos had to be creative and compelling.
Phil Amplo, Coordinator of Health Services said, “Many of the groups cleverly balanced humor to grab the viewer’s attention with startling facts about smoking-related diseases; others simply used scare tactics. Very convincing videos sixth graders…nice job!”

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
