         CES Students Create Art for Anti-Bullying Campaign
The 5th grade students at Columbia Elementary have been very involved in the
 district-wide and building Anti-Bullying Campaign. In an effort to reach more
              students, CES held an Anti-Bullying Poster Contest.

  All 5th graders had the chance to create a poster. Mrs. Detmer-Bogaert nar-
rowed the selection down to 24 and then the students selected the top 10 post-
        ers. Those posters will now be on display throughout the building.

     Winning artists are: Anna Edman, Kristen Kuntz, Maddie Aruri, Eliza
