A note from our Middle School Teachers:
Last week, some of the students in seventh and eighth grade brought up the possibility of participating in the National School Walkout taking place on March 14, 2018. It is to commemorate the seventeen victims of the high school students in Parkland, Florida. We have been discussing as a class how to do this in a meaningful manner.
We decided that at 9:55 a.m. on March 14, to walk across the street to the corner of NE 24th St and 156th Ave NE to the park and stand for 17 minutes. The students made a banner that says, "#REMEMBER 17" with the names of the deceased students.
Our students are taking this very seriously. This is the issue for their generation to solve, and they want their voices heard. We are hoping to empower them to speak up.
