"UNITY" Students stand against Bullying

For the second year in a row Students from Cotter and Mountain Home School Districts showed their support for the National "Unity Day" by spelling out letters in the word Unity and wearing Orange.  October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  Baxter County Sheriff's Office School Resource Officers helped coordinate some of the events that help the schools remind students that bullying will not be tolerated.  We encourage parents continue with what the schools have started and talk to students about bullying. With their help we can make our schools a happier and safer educational environment!

Local Youth Wins National Elks Essay Contest

Americanism, what does it mean to you? When asking local Pinkston Middle School student James Swartz it means a lot.  James along with over 200 other local students entered the Elks Lodge Americanism Essay contest and explained what it means to them.  James wrote an essay entitled “What Veterans Day Means to Me”.  His along with 3 others were submitted to the state wide competition where James essay won. It was then sent on to the National competition where his words about Americanism won again.  We are very proud of his accomplishment and would also like to commend all the students that volunteered to submit an essay!  Thanks go to the Mountain Home Elks Lodge and all they do for the youth of our community.
