BURILLVILLE â€” For students at Burrillville Middle School, â€śbeing mean stinks.â€ť
Hundreds of students in Grades 7-8 have been taking part in Bullying Prevention Month activities this month as part of a local school campaign to spread the word about bullying prevention.
Led by school counselor Pamela Connors, each of the students have taken the anti-bullying promise in which they pledge to wipe out bullying. â€śBullying is cruel. Bullying hurts. Bullying will not be tolerated,â€ť the pledge says in part.
â€śThese activities have really united our school,â€ť says Connors.
Just because the Red Sox declined to pick up Dan Wheelerâ€™s $3 million option for the 2012 season doesnâ€™t automatically spell the end of the partnership between the team and relief pitcher.
As Wheeler explained when reached Monday afternoon, the opportunity to return to Boston remains on the table. Itâ€™s just that the process in doing so has completely changed.
The Division I playoff seeding race has changed shape several times over the past week.
A fortnight ago, it appeared as though La Salle Academy and Shea High would finish 1-2 in the overall points race. Now, thanks to a strong finish by Central Falls, the Warriors will be the No. 2 seed in the eight-team playoff field that begins action on Friday.
PROVIDENCE â€” Cumberland missed a chance to improve its playoff seeding on Monday when it played a 1-1 tie with Hope High, which brought a 1-13-2 record into the regular season finale.
â€śWe didnâ€™t help ourselves today,â€ť Cumberland coach John Lopes said afterwards. â€śWe had a chance to move up in the seedings if we won and got some help from someone else but we played flat for all but about five minutes of todayâ€™s game.â€ť
