The Team Up Challenge anti-bullying public service announcement (PSA) created by MacArthur High School students and San Antonio Spurs player Danny Green can now be found online at:

On Thursday, Dec. 6, Green visited MacArthur to film the PSA with the students. The MacArthur PALs program was awarded a $2,500 grant from the Spurs sponsored Team Up Challenge to complete the service project.

The Team Up Challenge is a service learning program that allows students to take what they are learning in the classroom and apply it to the real world, bringing education alive in powerful ways. By participating in service learning projects, young people identify needs in their own communities, create their own projects, and use the knowledge they have gained throughout their years of schooling to address these needs.

MacArthur students plan to use the video as they make presentations to other students about bullying in schools.
