Our middle schoolers organized a walkout this morning as part of the National School Walkout. Students silently left their classes, lay down on 25th Street between Lombard and Waverly, and reflected on the lives lost to school violence.
We are so proud of our students. They are not only the hope for the future - but the hope for today, tomorrow, and the next day.
The student organizers would like to give special thanks to Pure Design at 22nd and Lombard Streets for donating the 17 flowers to commemorate the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
