Middle School Students Share Letters with Victims of Hurricane Harvey

Thursday, December 14, 2017

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. We then wrote letters to Middle School students who lived in the area most deeply impacted by Hurrican Harvey. Yesterday, the principal of Riverwood Middle School sent me the email below. 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.
