The two winners of the poster contest included fourth grade student, Parker Shults, and fifth grade student, Samantha LaMont.

East Hill family facilitator Michele Nare organized the contest. 

Shults’ message was that bullying isn’t cool, but kindness is. He said he enjoyed learning about ways to prevent cyber-bullying, and that kindness matters in the school family.
