Captain Deadeye Anti-Bullying Program
Because of their own personal experiences with being bullied, Authors Dianne de Las Casas and John Couret are passionate about bringing awareness to the issue of bullying, helping students cope, and providing solutions to this pervasive problem. John was teased as a child because of his lazy eyes and called “Deadeye John.” Dianne was teased as a child because of third-degree burn scars covering a large portion of her body. In their anti-bully book series, a cast of cool characters (Captain Deadeye, Scarlet, and Buccaneer Bracey) go on swashbuckling adventures across the seven seas and find the courage to face their real-life bullies, creating positive change within their own communities. In their fun, powerful, and interactive author visit program for grades PK-8, students learn how to be “Masters of the 7 Cs” and become “Lifesavers.” So join John and Dianne in their national campaign to Stop Bullying! Be a Lifesaver!
