As a middle school, we participated in the nationwide walkout to raise awareness about school safety and gun violence. The students walked out of class to pay tribute to the 17 people who died in Parkland, Florida because of a school shooting. Some of the older students read poetry, spoke about the individual people who were killed, and the choir sang "Where is the love?" by the Black Eyed Peas.This was a very special moment of solidarity among the students and staff. Thank you for being a part of this.
