The students and staff of Hutton Elementary School marked Pink Shirt Day on Feb. 27 with an assembly and activity day centred on anti-bullying. On this day, students and staff wear pink shirts in support of students who have been bullied, and as a symbol that they will not tolerate bullying. At the assembly on Wednesday, students performed a flash mob, heard spoken word poetry, and learned more about bullying and how they can stand up for other students and make their school community a safer and happier place. After their activities, students and staff joined for a baked potato lunch in the gym. A big thanks to all the parents and Buy Low for the donations.   (Kathleen Saylors/Grand Forks Gazette)
