Woodridge students honor Parkland school victims

Rocky Mount High School students organized a moment of silence and walk around the high school track that more than 1,000 students participated in.

"We were afraid that some of us might be doing it just to get out of class, so we made this to remind them", said Autumn Nichols, "and enough is enough". Where will this end?

"I think this is great", Fielding said. If not, why not? "The precedent this sets is troubling, and could be very problematic for years to come". We should not stand around and wait for someone to take action for us. Around 350 students stood up and moved away from their desks, proceeded to the door, and walked out of their third period classrooms toward the visitor side bleachers without a word being said. "Also, most of the students you allowed to walk out and protest are not of age".

In some school systems across the nation, students walked outside.

While AVID is taught in 6,400 middle and high schools nationwide, only those who successfully implement the standards schoolwide qualify as an AVID National Demonstration School.

Booker also contended that allowing the students to gather outside was not safe.

Other sessions included instructions on how to register to vote and a talk about security with police officers. She said schools need to be protected with better gun control laws. "Parkland, I'm so sorry". The question is, how should the issue be addressed?

Still, most people in the community have been supportive, Zakhour said.

A woman who was taking care of the girl found the texts and reported it to authorities, according to the sheriff's office. Almost one-thousand students learned financial responsibility with this challenge - armed with a budget, the students visited tables.each one representing a different monthly expense.like groceries, rent and student loans. students learned at the end whether they were in the red or in the green. "The point is that this is not a simple issue". I saw their courage firsthand as I proudly marched with them to the Capitol and the White House in February, and I was glad to be arm-in-arm with them once again last week. "We had paper, where students could reflect, write and think". I pray our elected leadership will listen and respond to these students.

Booker and Batchelor also spoke by phone.

"We're all really fired up, and we're really prepared to be in this fight for the long run", she said.

"We don't care if you're a Democrat".

During the sit/die-in, which starts at 10 AM, students plan to chant, "Chicago, Chicago, can't you see what these gunshots did to me?" and "Whose streets?"

With the one message of unity, love and respect for the shooting victims, about two-thirds of the high school students met in the commons area, where the school walkout was held.

Students face the risk and repercussions of missed classes and unreceptive attitudes from administration by participating in these walkouts in a college environment.

In an interview, Superintendent Jim Carlson said a student came to him the week before the national walkout and asked whether students could organize an event for the week after the walkout.

"Keeping our children safe is our priority regardless of the cost".

"I'm just trying to show my sign", said Navas.
