Supporting Parkland from Lennoxville
Mar. 2, 2018 | Students in Mrs. Carey's and Mrs. Rothney's Form IV English classes spent this week writing letters of support to the students affected by the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
Following the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, earlier this month, a teacher reached out to the IB community to request letters of support to give to her students on their first day back. Mrs. Carey was quick to answer the call, along with many other teachers at BCS and around the world. Mrs. Carey sees this not only as an opportunity to teach students to practice empathy, but as a way for them to recognize that the stories they read in the news are affecting real people around the world.
The letters will be shipped off to Stoneman Douglas High School later today.
