Larchmont Charter School Wins Award on Anti-Bullying Art Piece


Larchmont Charter School submitted an all-school art project to the national No Name-Calling Week Creative Expression Contest – and walked away with First Place prize this week.

As Sebastian Bader, the 3rd grade narrator of the film shares, since No Name Calling Week fell in the same week as Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, the school saw an opportunity to tie the anti-bullying campaign with the work of great civil rights leaders, and used the theme What Would Martin Luther King Do? for their winning piece. View the film below, or watch it on YouTube.

Katy Wilson, Larchmont Charter’s art teacher, pulled together the project at the school and parent William Lucas Walker put together the video that led the Gay Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to award Larchmont Charter First Prize in their contest.

If you’d like to show support for Larchmont Charter School, the Hollygrove campus (corner of Vine and Waring) will host their giant Garage-A-Rama sale this Saturday, April 27th from 8am-2pm, offering household items, furniture and clothing donated by some 300 families.
