This morning on Wednesday March 14 at 9:45a.m., student leaders hosted their National Walkout Day demonstration with support from school staff and administration. The walkout occurred outside in front of the entry at the MAC. Leaders wore orange shirts which demonstrates gun violence. Students in the crowd held up posters on Anti-Gun Violence. The program began with a moment of silence for the wrongfully slain souls at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. The students honored the 17 fallen with 17 biodegradable balloons, with their names written on each balloon. Each orange-clad department student representative waited in silence for exactly 17 seconds, then released a balloon and presented a brief biography on who that fallen person was, whose balloon was already soaring high into the sky beyond mortal sight: Soccer player Alyssa Alhadeff, History teacher Scott Beigel, Freshman Martin Duque, Star swimmer Nicholas Dworet, Football coach Aaron Feis, Student Jaime Guttenberg, Athletic Director Chris Hixon, Luke Hoyer, Cara Loughran, Freshman Gina Montalto, Joaquin Oliver who was a student from Venezuela, JROTC student Alaina Petty, Senior Meadow Pollack, Helena Ramsey, Alex Schachter who was a freshman on the marching band, Carmen Schentrup who was a National Merit Scholar semi-finalist, and ROTC student Peter Wang.  #EnoughisEnough #csdr #csdrkindness

Roz, however, replied "The Library- it has the most 'stories' in the world." How funny, but true! Come to Social Hall Friday 3/9/18 at 4-5:30pm today to buy her books, $16 black/white, $30 color. CC/check/cash accepted. Only the students were honored with a free book, courtesy of Bummy Burstein, TinaJo Breindel, Joe Dannis, Trudy Suggs, and Roz Rosen! THANK YOU! #csdrkindness #csdr #hs
