What can we do...?

February 14, 2018 by Guest Student Author

Hello SBS community, 

Earlier this school year, I gave a speech in class meeting about gun violence and the Las Vegas mass shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds. As a united class, we wrote emails to our state officials, senators, and representatives, asking what their plan of action was, to protect the lives of citizens and anyone in the United States.

Unity,

Together we stand,

Against the greatest challenges,

That covers our light,

Regardless of race or personality,

Seventh graders in the Humanities 7 class have free-choice "independent writing" every week. Eleanor has agreed to share this lovely piece on the blog.
 
Smooth stones dotted the shoreline as the golden sun settled in its resting place behind the mountains. The sound of water gently lapping onto the shore drifted by the slate gray stone house. The taste of fresh peach pie lingered in her mouth and she smelled the welcoming musty smell of the old house. She was home for the summer, home at last. Skipping a stair she bounded up the flight of long endless stairs to the tower. Out of breath she leaned on the forest green railing she had painted a decade ago with her mom. Sitting down on the pale sofa she grabbed the first book that came to her and opened to the first page. A flutter of colors shapes and objects flashed past her eyes. Nothing had changed not even the books.
