This week we will be talking about: Bullying. Bullying is when someone uses their power to control or intentionally embarrass, or harm another person over and over again. Bullying may be physical (hitting, kicking, spitting, destroying property), verbal (teasing, name calling, saying mean things about the person, threatening), or emotional (spreading rumors, leaving someone out from activities, humiliating, or intimidating). Bullying may happen face to face or through the internet, or cell phones; and that is called cyber-bullying.

Today, we have _________ from Mr. Szakall's class to lead us in the pledge. Now, please stand...Put your right hand over your heart, ready begin...
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Please remember to come to school everyday and on time; and maybe you can win one of the great prizes in our attendance raffle! And...in ST Math, we have over 20 students who have completed 20% of the ST Math curriculum and earned themselves a High School Diploma as of last Friday. Along with these students are 3 students, however, who I think need to have their names read because they have finished 40% or more of the curriculum in ST Math and have earned their Associate's Degree. They are: Roberto Chamu, Humberto Santana, and Yaretzi Diaz. Again, great job, and keep up the hard work! Lastly, teachers and students, please be aware that in Southern California, we are on a heightened earthquake alert and teachers please review proper safety procedures with your students.
Remember, Safety First!
Thank you for your attention to this morning's message, S.O.A.R. today, and remember, to come to school every day and on time because when you miss school you miss out.
