Cyber Bullying

By: Ryan Pham

Dear readers,

I am a student at a middle school and we have a thing called CAT chat that we do every Monday. The purpose of CAT chat is to raise bully awareness and tell us what to do if we come across a bully or how to report it. I think CAT chat is a good thing to have at schools because bully awareness is something every school should have.
