Jackie Robinson Week at Local Middle School

By Gitzel Puente. CREATED Oct 28, 2013

RANCHO MIRAGE - Friday was the last day of an anti-bullying campaign at Palm Valley School in Rancho Mirage.

About 150 middle school students participated in activities and presentations that taught them about respect and good behavior as part of "Jackie Robinson Week." They painted a mural of Jackie Robinson that's on display in the hall.

Every year, the school selects a theme and role model to teach the students about the effects of bullying and how to overcome it and stand up for oneself.
