Volunteers with the Rock Creek Elementary PTO recently put together a huge display of an “anti-bullying Eagle,” featuring individual feathers made by the more than 700 students at the school. The students described what they would do in a bullying situation, either in response or in order to prevent bullying.

Dean of Students John Schuster had the idea for the project, and art docents Candace Tucker and Rachael Howell brought the 18-foot art project to life. Schuster said he is thrilled with how the project turned out. Parents and other staff members expressed their delight in the Eagle as well, so much so that Principal Chris Thomas told volunteers he intends to keep it up all year.
