Supporting One Another

SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER – During the McCarroll Middle School orientation Thursday, sixth graders sign each other’s shirts, as eighth-grader Maegan Shields (right) watches. It was a pledge to “have each other’s back” and create a school that does not tolerate bullying. More than 180 incoming sixth-graders attended the morning session, and Shields was among the 70 eighth graders who welcomed new-to-the-school students. Messenger Photo by Joe Duty

SIGNING SUPPORT – Hayley Murrillo signs a classmate’s shirt during orientation Thursday as a show of support. “How great would it be to have a school that supports each other,” said counselor Cindy Barksdale, who implemented the idea. “It starts with the kids. We can discipline it, but we have to teach our kids how to support one another.” Messenger Photo by Joe Duty
