The Gay Straight Alliance Club will be hosting a No Bullying week next week at Mason. There will be different activities held each day, including the signing of a pledge which will be up all week, as well as videos and discussions held in the library classroom during Mustang Block Tuesday through Friday. Snacks will be provided and counselors will be available during the activity on Friday to talk and answer questions.
Because of the snow days on March 3 and 4, the schedule has been slightly adjusted.
A creative writing contest in response to lines 25-28 of Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If” and what it means in perspective of bullying will also be going on during this week. Submissions can be in any form but should fit on one side of 8 ½ x 11 paper. Entry forms can be picked up at the library and the works are due by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11 in the library’s submission box. The winning entry will be published on The Lasso and the author will receive $20.
