Now here’s a cause the Eh? desk can get behind.
Nettleton Elementary students are selling “stop bullying” T-shirts in an effort to raise enough money to outfit the whole school in its own. The T-shirt money is meant to supplement a grant the school received to work on anti-bullying efforts and to remind students of the “golden rule,” special education teacher Ally Austin said.
“At Nettleton, we are constantly working to develop our students’ sense of civic responsibility and empathy,” she said.
The shirts, which also say “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” cost $10 for short sleeves with youth sizes extra-small through extra-large and adult sizes small through 6XL; and $15 for long sleeves with youth sizes small through extra-large and adult sizes small through 5XL. The deadline to order is Feb. 7. The shirt size can be written in the memo of the check, and checks can be written out to “Nettleton Elementary” and sent to Nettleton Elementary, c/o Ally Austin, 108 E. Sixth St., Duluth, MN 55805. Shirts can be picked up at the school. Call Austin at (218) 733-2172 for details.
