Over the last few years, in schools across the country, there has been a growing concern regarding bullying, harassment and student safety. Behaviors that had tra- ditionally been allowed to persist, being excused as "kids will be kids" or "a normal part of growing up," are now being considered and addressed. We at Eastview are taking a proactive position by developing a comprehensive program to help make our school safer for all students when it comes to bullying and harass- ment. As part of this program, we will be conducting a week-long awareness program starting December 13. Our theme will be, "Take a Stand." The week will start off with the School Resource Of- ricer providing students with a description of what bul- lying and harassment looks like as well as the legal rami- fications regarding bullying and harassment. The rest of the week will cover the four major types of bullying and harassment. The four major types of bullying and harassment are: Physical (hitting, kicking, biting, throwing things, etc.) (name calling, teasing, taunting, insulting, etc.) Relational (gossip, exclusion, etc.) Cyber bullying (mean text messages or internet ac- tivity) Everyone needs to know what it means, what it looks like, "and how it makes people feel. Bullying is defined as an aggressive behavior done with the intent to con- trol or harm that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power. We encourage you, your family and frier ds to openly talk about the issues and learn together what canbe done to prevent a harassing environment within our school and community.

Respectfully submitted, Jodi Henke, 2009/2010 Secretary Get What You Really Want At The Salon (NAPS)--Changing your hair-style, whether it is a dra- matic cut or new hair color, is a big decision. Celebrity col- orist and Joico spokeswoman Beth Minardi offers the fol- lowing "Salon Talk" tips to help make your next salon visit a success: It's true that a picture is g worth a thou- sand words. Bring photos of hair you like as well as hair you don't  like--this will Beth Minard] helpyour col- orist or stylist understand exactly what you want. When scheduling your appointment, tell the recep- tionist that you need an extra 10 or 15 minutes for a consultation. Communication is cru- cial. Bounce ideas back and forth with your colorist or stylist so that you both agree on what to do. Ask for a timetable-- sometimes your stylist or col- orist can't achieve the look you want in one appointment. For example, changing from dark hair to platinum blond can't happen in one visit. Speak up--vo  throughout the appointment. Often, a bad haircut ends up that way because the client didn't speak up earlier. Remember, colorists and stylists want happy, satisfied dients who come back Talking your new style through before and during your appointment is a good idea. For more tips, visit www. joico.com and call (800) 445- 6426. Some types of peppers are said to contain up to six times as much vitamin C as an orange. The highest lev- els are found when the pep- pers are in their "green" stage. Hot peppers contain less vitamin C than the milder bell peppers.
