Town of Chenango, NY (WBNG Binghamton) To kick off Christmas break at Chenango Valley Middle School students spent the day learning about wellness the fun way.

Students did Zumba for physical fitness, even inviting the principal to show his moves.

7th and 8th graders spent the day focusing on physical fitness, relationships, body image, and nutrition.

Bullying was also a topic of conversation, one group of 8th graders made 300 "I Have Your Back Buddy" bracelets.

They handed them out to all junior high students as a way to band together against bullying.

"You give it to a friend and you're promising them that if they're being bullied or anything that you'll have their back and always be there for them," says Marina Chapman.

You could either wear the bracelet yourself, or give it to a friend, letting them know you have their back.
