HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAYr OCTOBER 81 2010 5 Bullying puts' students at risk Submitted by NM DEPT. of HEALTH~Santa Fe Bullyifig in schools de- creases with each .grade level as students advance through middle school and high school, accord- ing to a 2009 survey of almost 46,000 New Mexico middle and high school students. About 35 percent of 6th graders reported being bullied compared to ap- proximately 15 percent of 12'h grade students. The New Mexico Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey, con- ducted every other year by the New Mexico Department of Health and the Publi~ Education Department. collects data self-re- ported by students from most of the 89 school districts in New Mexico. The survey was com- pleted by 22.249 high school students and 23.628 middle school students. This is the first year the survey included ques- tions about bullying. The survey asks students about violence in school, substance use. mental health issues and other behaviors, including protective factors in their lives. "Bullying puts young people at risk for making poor choices, so parents and school districts must work together to create safe school environments where students can thrive and not feel threatened," said Health Sec- retary Alfredo Vigil, MD. "The survey results also remind us how important it is for adults to have caring relationships with adoles- cents.'" High school students were less likely to be bullied if they had high levels of caring and sup- portive relationships with a teacher, a parent or other adults at school or home. High school students who were bullied on school property were more likely than other students to attempt suicide be in a physical fight. drink alcohol or use cocaine. Middle school students who were bullied were more likely than C helsea Rodriguez with a tip Lady Panthers beat Mavericks across the board By ELIZABETH RICHINSIHidalgo County Herald -The Lady Panthers showed just how hard they've been working this season as they traveled to Lordsburg on Tuesday, September 28. and came home with two wins.

New Mexico's 80 school- based health centers help address violence in schools with a unique health care model that includes comprehensive physical, behav- ioral and preventive health ser- vices provided to adolescents in their school. All students who come to a school-based health center fill out a questionnaire about health issues and risk be- haviors, including questions about school safety, bullying and teen dating violence. School- based health center staff can in- tervene with school personnel when the student's safety is be- ing compromised and work with youth who are reported to be bul- lies to improve his or her skills in dealing with anger and aggres- sion. "School-based health cen- ters are an excellent way to cre- ate a safe environment that en- courages students to walk-in and address anything that is getting in the way of learning," said Anna Nelson. behavioral health pro- gram manager for the Department of Health's Office of School and Adolescent Health. "'School- based health centers also provide low stigma access to behavioral health services because students can drop in at any time for any reason." In November 2006, the Pub- lic Education Department adopted a Bullying Prevention Rule that requires all public school districts, including char- ter schools, to adopt and imple- ment an anti-bullying policy. "Safety in New Mexico's schools is one of the most im- portant issues facing our com- munities. Safety is critical for fostering an environment that is conducive to learning and growing, and for building healthier relationships." said Education Secretary Designate Susanna Murphy, PhD. "Pro- viding an educational environ- ment for all' students, employ- ees. volunteers, and families. free from harassment, intimida- tion, or bullying supports a to- tal learning experience that pro- motes personal growth, healthy interpersonal relationships, wellness, and freedom from dis- crimination and abuse. There- fore,,harassment, intimidation or bullying are forms of dan- gerous and disrespectful behav- ior that cannot be tolerated in New Mexico's schools." Other findings from the sur- vey about violence in schools include: More than 7 percent of high school Students skipped school because they felt unsafe either-at school or on the way to or from school. Fifteen percent of high school stt/dents were involved in a physical fight on school prop- erty, 19 percent of boys and nearly 11 percent of girls. More than 8 percent of high school students carried a weapon, such as a gun, knife, or club on school property. Boys were two times more likely to carry a weapon on school prop- erty than girls (11 percent com- pared to 5 percent). Thirty-one percent of high school students had been offered, sold, or given illegal drugs on school property. Almost 10 percent of high school students used.mari-, juana and 8.7 percent smoked cigarettes on school property in the past 30 days.

The game was intense, and started out bad for the Panthers. In the beginning, Juarez was ahead, leading the game. After half time, though, the Panthers made a signifi- cant comeback.
