Each person one meets plays some type of roll in the development of their character. The Early Act First Knights in Armor, Sir Cass and Sir Frank, were invited to Bear Branch Elementary School last week to � introduce a new character development program to students and teachers. Funding for the award-winning program, EAFK was made possible thanks to the Kingwood Rotary Club. The program is funded by the Rotary because the members believe in its benefits. â��This program will make kids understand that they can do the right thing even when no one is watching. They can be a hero.â�� said Tommie Buscemi, Kingwood Rotarian. â��The EAFK helps the studentsâ�� overall educational experience,â�� Buscemi added. Bear Branch Elementary School in Kingwood is the first school in the area to offer this program. â��Rotary approached � BBE with the program in September. � We visited an elementary school in Klein ISD who implemented the program very successfully last year. We saw the excitement of the students when Sir Cass was talking about being kind to one another, tolerance and doing your best. We wanted that same excitement at BBE.â�� said Kakie Palmer, Bear Branch principal. The excitement on each of the studentsâ�� faces was blatant as the Knights told their story and did a little role playing. Their cheers roared throughout the cafeteria when Sir Cass and Sir Frank revealed their swords and began to have a friendly sword fight on stage. Teaching through acting has proven over and over again to be an effective teaching tool. In the middle of his act, Sir Cass told the students, â��It does not matter how tall you are; how young or old you are; if you are a boy or a girl - what you do today will leave your legacy!â�� â��What is more important than the weapon in your hand is what you have here, and here,â�� Sir Cass said, pointing to his head and to his heart.
