Back when I was in 6th grade, I was playing volleyball in the morning with some of my friends. My friends started to leave and a big group of girls surrounded me. One of the girls kept asking me if I had been talking about them. I kept telling them no, but I guess they didn't believe me because all of the sudden one of the girls punched me in the cheek. There were no teachers around, so no one saw what happened. I went to the office and reported what the girls had done. The girl who punched me was suspended for three days. After that, all of her friends kept giving me dirty looks and acting like they were going to beat me up. Then when the girl came back, she was always looking at me. I started going straight to my classes because I was scared. After a while she stopped giving me dirty looks and left me alone." Threatening, intimidation, and assault are against the law and against school policy. Talk to an Glossary Link adult that you can trust if these things are happening to you or to someone you know.
