Unity Day 2013 Celebrated in Local Schools

Students from Cotter and Mountain Home School Districts showed their support for the National "Unity Day" by spelling out the words Unity Day and wearing Orange.  October is National Bullying Prevention Month and October 9th is when everyone shows their united support by wearing orange. 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.
