The public and private sector are joining ranks to beef up local anti-bullying efforts.
Home Street Middle School Principal Patrick Twomey said that when Carri Coudek of Happy-Hoods approached him about coming on board the schoolâs anti-bullying campaign, he said, ââAbsolutely, that fits in beautifullyâ (and) we jumped at the chanceâ to collaborate.
âCoudek has pushed the anti-bullying campaign in the community and Happy-Hoods is the face of that effort,â added Twomey. In fact, Happy-Hoods sweatshirts are now the official Home Street Middle School shirt.
