Fifth grade students at Mill Creek Towne Elementary School participated in an anti-bullying program this year sponsored by the Montgomery County Committee on Hate Violence. An awards ceremony was held on April 28 to recognize outstanding participants.
Each student read a book about bullying called “Triple Threat” that was co-authored by Jerome Williams, former NBA basketball player and alumnus of Mill Creek Towne Elementary. Students then completed projects to illustrate what they had learned. A first, second, and third place prize was awarded in each of three categories.
First – Brian Piedra-Martel (painting)
Second – Miriam Koudaya (drawing)
Third – Amanda Corbett (drawing)
First – Christian Popov (monologue)
Second – Janelle Monroe (song)
Third – Jennifer Holt, Gabrielle Matthews, and Madeline Hughes (song)
First – Ashley Caceres (essay)
Second – Nathaly Benitez (poem)
Third – Jesse Tang (poem)
