BOHEMIA - Ronkonkoma Middle School faculty used entertainment to teach students an important lesson on bullying tonight.

Teachers took to the stage at Connetquot High School, showing students that bullying is never OK.

Earlier this week, President Obama held his first anti-bullying rally, which is a first step toward a federal anti-bullying law. A state law goes into effect next year.

Principal Charles Morea says they plan to use the money raised from ticket sales at tonight's show to bring in guest speakers, presentations and buy anti-bullying materials for the school.
