Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Advisement

Many of you may be aware that there was a nationally organized movement calling for students and staff to "walk out" for 17 minutes beginning at 10 AM today.  There have been different agendas nationally regarding this movement.  We chose to use this opportunity to conduct one of our mandated safety drills and then gave the students the option to return to class or stay outside in memory of the 15 students and 2 staff members that tragically lost their lives one month ago today.  Prior to the drill, we conducted our normal school-wide advisement period focusing on "Acts of Kindness" and how to treat one another with respect.   

As I walked around outside, I had the opportunity to speak with students and discuss the tragedy that took place and how our number one priority will always be student and staff safety.   There were also stories shared how some groups were going to do 17 Acts of Kindness and another group focused on being kind to someone they did not know for 17 seconds.  Please take the opportunity if you have not done so already and talk to your child about many of the issues regarding the horrific event that took place one month ago today at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida.  Thank you for allowing us to work with your student(s) each and every day.  We are very fortunate to have the student population that we have and we are committed to helping them navigate their way through very difficult times.
