Hyattsville's high school has had no reported incidents of bullying so far this year. One attempt was thwarted by students who alerted authorities about it.
The students at Northwestern High School aren't immune to the headlines that list adolescent bullying as a crucial issue for today's teens. Here, where more than 2,600 students walk the hallways everyday, bullies have gotten more aggressive and dangerous. "It's a daily event," says Corporal Mike Rudinski, a Hyattsville City Police officer who is assigned as the schools full-time resource officer. "We have dealt with extreme cases of bullying, but not often." Last year, Northwestern High School recorded at least six cases of aggressive bullying, according to the school's principal, Jerome Thomas. So far, no instances of bullying have been recorded for this school year. But with an ever-growing gang presence in the Hyattsville area, Rudinksi…

Senior Fatim Camara and junior Lateefat Yusuff will lead the offensive attack for the Northwestern girls soccer team this year
The girls' soccer team at Northwestern High School could round a sharp corner this year with second-year head coach Bret Loes at the helm, and veterans Fatim Camara and Lateefat Yusuff leading the offense. Although the Wildcats started 4-1 last year, academic ineligibility and injuries later in the season resulted in a 7-6 finish. Ultimately, Northwestern lost in the first round of the regional playoffs. This August marks a new chapter for the soccer program at the school. With new leaders and captains on the team, a positive attitude in place, and two weeks of practice under their belts, Northwestern is quickly preparing for their first game on Sept. 8 against Charles Flowers High School. Leading the offensive charge this season will be …

Some students are excited about classes and concerned about SchoolMAX.
According to Northwestern High School freshmen Trevor Joyce, Colin Martinez and Jared Hesh – all from University Park – math is on the "dread" list. In the "win" column, these three boys agreed Monday morning that basketball looks to be good at NHS this year. Parents have concerns besides hoops, particularly about how useful the scheduling/report card/attendance program SchoolMax will be this year. Sophomore Lilia Hinojosa of Hyattsville saw her schedule last week through SchoolMax but had trouble Sunday evening. Her mother, Christine Cestello Hinojosa, hopes this is only a problem with a high volume of users the night before school opened. Last year, the school system had major problems with SchoolMAX, with some students out of …

What a welcome we've received in Hyattsville! Here's a look at what we covered this week.
This has been a week of much change. It began with a welcome to Hyattsville Patch and ended … one day later. Well, it's Sunday, so two days. But in that short time span, I went from being an obscure figure working behind the scenes to being the local editor of a live website linked into a network of over 100 sites around the country. (Oh, that happened too! On Aug. 17 the Morristown, N.J. Patch launched, becoming the 100th Patch in history). In Hyattsville, we had rain (again), H-shaped planters descended on the city, and, I'm certain, a few dogs were lost/found. We seem to lose our pups a lot around here. (For tips on how to prevent this, read our headlining story today: Finding A Way Home, by Patricia King). Patch writers also got to …
