The middle school has been raising money for Kick-It.
They’ve held car washes and cut their hair. They’ve paid for sweatpants days and sold T-shirts. And it’s all going to cancer research. The students at Brecksville-Broadview Heights Middle School have been hard at work raising money for Kick-It. According to its website, Kick-It is a national organization that donates to pediatric, adolescent and young adult cancer research. The middle school started taking part three years ago, collecting thousands of dollars each spring. This year, the students are hoping to collect $25,000. “We should stop this and raise as much money as we can,” said 8th-grade student Sarah O’Donnell.

The students have been practicing random acts of kindness this spring.
School Counselor Kirstin D’Alessandro felt like she was spending too much time focusing on the negative, constantly talking to students at Brecksville-Broadview Heights Middle School about not bullying. She wanted to turn the conversation into a positive and remind students to do good for others, so she created “Bee the Difference!” cards. D’Alessandro passed the cards out to all the students in the middle school this spring, encouraging them to do random acts of kindness for others, leaving the card behind. Each card has a number and includes a website where the person who was on the receiving end of the good deed can submit it online. And then, D’Alessandro hopes, they’ll pass the card along by doing a good deed of their own. “Help your …

The 7th and 8th grade teams both took home first place in the regional tournament at St. Joseph Academy. In Power of the Pen competitions, students are given an open-ended prompt and 40 minutes to write a short story or essay. “Everything else is your own,” said Megan Zhao, a member of the 8th grade team. The students all have their favorite aspects of writing. Many said they enjoy writing as a way to express emotions. Alyssa Holzinger, a member of the 7th grade team, said she likes thinking of different outcomes for the prompts. In one of her favorites this year, Holzinger took the point of view of a worm. “…

The Bee Athletic Boosters are hosting a party this weekend.
This Saturday, the Bee Athletic Boosters want you to kick off the weekend of the big game by supporting local athletes.

It’s just a casual night out, Best said. “I love doing that one,” Best added. Everything the club …
