The Riverhead Peacemakers will receive the “United for Kindness” award from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center on May 22.The Riverhead Peacemakers are a fourth grade student-led anti-bullying movement started by Morgan Dunn, now in ninth grade, when she was at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School. The Peacemakers in both schools meet with Shannon Kutner, Riverhead Community Awareness Program’s elementary school social worker, during recess to discuss ways to prevent and reduce bullying in their schools. In January, the students assisted their schools by organizing student and staff participation in the Great Kindness Challenge, as well as other activities.
