After Hurricane Harvey hit the Southwest, all 215 Middle School students watched a video about the floods in Texas. Simultaneously, we had some guided discussions on empathy and compassion.

Today's assembly gave me a moment to read this letter aloud to our community. It lifted my spirits, I hope it does the same for you.
