Second and third grade students at Jackson-Milton Elementary School went home with a special gift today, their own copy of the book, Listen to Leslie.
Diane Demetrios of Boardman, wrote the book in memory of her daughter who passed away. The book is Diane’s way of getting an anti-bullying message out to elementary children, and honor her daughter. The main take home message stresses the importance of being kind to everyone.
The book is part of Let’s Make a Difference (LMD), a non-profit in Northeast Ohio. LMD focuses on bullying prevention. Wednesday afternoon, the Demetrios family read Listen to Leslie to second and third grade students at JMES, and sent them home with a copy of the book
