Intersections: Giving Thanks 2018

November 21, 2018 by Bill Ivey

Doves adorn the staircase to the middle school, twirling gently in the air currents, still exuding the active hope for peace expressed by the students who made them and arranged them. At the top of the staircase sits a totem pole, made by the class of 2019 back when they were seventh graders, expressing who they were at the time and thus, in many ways, who they are now. I walk into the middle school lobby, where soon enough kids will start to flood in, flopping on the chair and couch, half sitting on each other’s laps as they chatter about any- and everything that crosses their minds. I walk into my room, past the Black Lives Matter, Girl Power, and LGBT Safe space signs on the door, and arrange the blue beanbags in a half circle. Soon, kids will half-walk, half-run into the room and either drop their backpacks on their beanbag of choice, whirl, and return to the lobby, or drop down to relax and hang out with their friends as they arrive.

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,
