A Spotlight on Women's History: Virne “Jackie” Mitchell, a pitcher, was the first woman in professional baseball. While women still don’t have much of a presence in baseball today, Mitchell proved that it wasn’t because they couldn’t play. During an exhibition game, she struck out both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Her performance probably played a part in baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis banning women from the sport later that year.

Bartlett's Track & Field team is Stepping In and Standing Out this week, taking the lead in our second week of adding more positive vibes into our school.  Each member of the team, including the coaches, have a goal of saying "Thank You" to at least 7 people per day at Bartlett. They are challenging you to join them in this effort to increase the gratitude vibes at Bartlett. All you have to do is track your thank you's to see if you can meet or exceed 7 per day. Let people know when they do something, big or small, that you are grateful for and look for opportunities to express it!
