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.
Trail Ridge Middle School would like our families to know that we appreciate the efforts of so many of you in helping us to provide support for our TRMS students who may be struggling with mental health issues.
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.
