Students in Mr. Uhrie’s Creative Writing Class at Bellport High School were recently recognized for their exceptional poetry written on the theme of bullying.  An awards ceremony was held on Saturday, October 5th, by Princess Ronkonkoma Productions, a non-profit independent production company managed by physically handicapped artists. Through poetry, Mr. Uhrie’s students were provided with a means to express their own thoughts and feelings on this important issue and also to provide a strong message to others about the devastating effects of bullying. Mr. Uhrie also received an award in the adult’s contest, for his poem written on the theme of surviving storms.
