Under the supervision of art teachers Ms. Pashayan and Mr. Lucas, fifth graders from  Stewart and Stratford Schools designed t-shirts with anti-bullying messages to encourage students to take a stand against bullying. The t-shirts, which were donated to the schools by the Garden City Community Coalition, were originally displayed at Stewart and Stratford Schools and are currently on display in the Children's Room for the month of November. Katie Colavito of the Garden City Community Coalition arranged for the display at the Library. Stop by the Children's Room to read the slogans and see the designs from the talented students of the Garden City School District.
