We miss our students! As part of Middle School’s Social Studies engagement activities, students have been asked to put on their “historian hats” and document the events of their lives in a daily journal.

I found out that I did not win something that I have wanted for my entire life and worked so hard for, I found out that I might not get to see any of my friends again till next school year, I miss them so much and I didn’t even get to hug them and tell them bye because we had no idea any of this was going to be this serious.
