The bell just rang, and my awesome class just left room 104. We are all about to enjoy an extended Memorial Day weekend due to a lack of snow days. At some point this week, many of our classes discussed the significance of Memorial Day. Some even heard about the lives of the amazing people I served with who died in either Iraq or Afghanistan. After hearing such stories, and since this is a social studies class, I'm sure you understand why I think this would be a good opportunity to pause and reflect as we start to end this year's social media adventure.
I spoke of how I would like to do something more as a school on days like today. I hope that next year I can put something together....and If I don't, perhaps you will! The two articles below are about what students from the high school that I went to in South Jersey do. Further, the news video below is both informative and moving.
