Counselors Corner - Cyberbullying: How To Protect Your Student

Cyberbullying has become a big problem with children today.  Because of their constant connection to technology through the internet, emails, text messages, online forums, social media, and chat rooms, it is easier for students to harass, threaten, humiliate or belittle their victims.  Unlike traditional bullying, cyberbullying doesn’t require physical strength or face to face contact, and it isn’t limited to just a handful of witnesses.  Instead is it sneaky and mean, and often shared with hundreds of other students.

It’s that time of year again, and all Colorado schools have begun their state testing.  State tests are important for your student’s success.  Because of this, test taking can be very stressful.

“Create things you wish existed.” -Ashley K, 6th Grader

This is a very special blog about an amazing project completed by Ashley K. In my class, the first design challenge was about natural resources. Here is a link to the challenge:


They Are the Champions - Spread the Word Against Vandalism

The Longmont Youth Council recently sponsored a citywide contest looking for innovative and creative one-minute videos displaying how to positively take action and spread the word against vandalism. Six young ladies from Mrs. Thaler's STEM Broadcasting class entered and came out on top winning 1st place. The TRMS students were interviewed with Longmont Channel 8 TV news at the Youth Center on March 24th and received a $200 prize to share. Their video will also be aired on a future Channel 8 News cast. Congratulations to Kayla H., Natasha R., Sidney J., Sami P. Jimena A., Kate P.
