Anti-bullying program held in Howland

Anti-bullying program at Howland Glen school

HOWLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – Students at Howland Glen Elementary School got a big surprise on Wednesday.

Captain McFinn from the Eastwood Mall greeted the students. He is teaching them how to become a buddy and not a bully.

The event was hosted by the Trumbull County Educational Service Center. Organizers said it’s important to approach students about bullying at an early age.

“We make it very child friendly through coloring, through stickers, puppets. We really want to reach kids at this level, where they’re still vulnerable and easy to change. We try to bring that cartoon message using characters, different role playing models, to the classrooms for students at a level that they can understand,” program coordinator Denise Holloway said.

Other anti-bullying events are planned at the school throughout the year.
