NATIONAL BULLYING AWARENESS AND PREVENTION MONTH
This week kicks off National Bullying Awareness and Prevention Month. Every morning, there will be a different message about what you can do to stop bullying! First of all, how do you define bullying? Bullying occurs when someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and they keep doing it, even when you tell them to stop or show them that you are upset. Bullying can take many forms. It can be physical, like hitting, kicking, or punching. It can also be social or emotional, like using words to hurt someone, leaving someone out, or gossiping and spreading rumors. Bullying can happen at school, in your neighborhood, or online. Adults may not see when someone is bullied. This happens because bullying often happens outside the view of adults. This is why is important to report bullying to an adult! Adults want to know about it and stop it from happening.  

If you see or experience cyber bullying, save the evidence.  If the bullying continues, you may need the proof before steps can be taken to make it stop.  You can save the evidence by printing it, taking a screenshot, or just not erasing it.  Share what you see with a trusted adult so they can help.  The best thing you can really do on social media is to simply be kind to one another!  Another thing you can do on social media, is share awesome pics of you and your friends wearing orange on Wednesday, October 24, to celebrate Unity Day!

SPORTS 
The (jh) boys cross country team won the Dave Bork Classic on Saturday.  The boys dominated the competition, outscoring the closest team in the 9 school race by over 60 points.  They had a lot of season best times as well.  Aiden O., Gabe B., Braiden W., Sawyer U., Logan H., Aiden D., Braxon L., Jonas E., Matthew H., Ethan T., and Gabe T. all ran their best times.  Jackson W. and Hussein J. ran season best as well.  It was a great season for the guys.  Way to finish with a good win!  Team banquet will be Tuesday after school.

The girls cross country team ended their season at the Dave Bork Invitational on Saturday.  The team finished on a high note, winning easily and earning another 21 personal best times.  Our top finishes were Bekah A., who had a jaw-dropping time of 12:23, Ally B., who had a breathtaking time of 12:59, Ava R., Sydney D., Emma B., Katelyn D., and Brooklyn M..  Bekah finished third in the SEC overall. Ally finished fifth, Ava finished seventh, and Sydney finished eighth, giving us four of the top ten runners in the conference. There were strong, personal best smashing performances from Sarah B., Skyler B., Alivia B., Adrianna K., Ilana R., Lizzy S., Savannah F., Mia G., and Gretchen H. There were so many impressive finishes from the top to the bottom of the team.  Each runner should be very proud of what she’s accomplished. Congratulations on an outstanding season.
