A speaker joined students at St. Patrick's Catholic School in Weston to talk about saying no to drugs, saying yes to a positive attitude, and anti-bullying.

Bullying tends to be a problem in every age group. Some people think it's just in young children, but it can happen with adults too. According to psychologists, violence occurs biologically, and there is a big difference between these behaviors in girls and boys. If boys get into an argument or pick on someone it's usual in a physical way, but girls do it emotionally. A group of girls may single out someone to make them feel alone. At the assembly Thursday a local race car driver wanted to do everything he can to make sure bullying is under control.
 
"I remember being bullied and it's a sad thing. We don't need it in our lives and especially these kids don't need to have their hearts hurt. If I can reach one then I've done what I'm here to do. The are what it's about," said Norman Weaver, also known as Stormin' Norman.
 
Why Skylar was killed is not yet known, but some people think bullying did play a part. One woman said bullying is a pretty common thing and something needs to be done about it. There are actually schools that have programs to help prevent bullying. A teacher at St. Pat's talked about the one they have set up.

"We actually have a program called BLOC. It teaches kids to treat others with justice and dignity. We set up in our classrooms social scenarios so the students can think through ways to handle things in a Christ-like manner," said Sherri Jackson, Teacher.
