Wisconsin farm teaches bullying prevention with Spookley the Square Pumpkin
October 17, 2016
Schairer’s Autumn Acres in Birnamwood, Wisc., is incorporating the Spookley Farm Program into its activities this season. Spookley, a square pumpkin in a round pumpkin world, is the official Spokespumpkin of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month.
The story is incorporated into the farm’s smaller corn maze for young children, as well as other family activities. Karen Shairer talked about the farm’s bullying prevention efforts on WSAW, the CBS affiliate in Wausau, Wisc.
The Spookley Farm Program is part of an educational toolkit created by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center to complement The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano.
