“Walk-out” Wednesday

Andrea Grubb, Reporter

On March 14th, the school will participate in the Collective Day of Action to raise awareness. Both of the events will last 17 minutes to honor the 17 individuals that died in the MSD shooting that occurred on February 14, 2018.

The day will start with “Forge the Future”, which is a rally that will start off the day. Student leaders will help lead the event. It will be a way for students to gather insight on how to get involved. “Forge the Future” will begin at 7:40 a.m. and last until 7:57 a.m. Students who are participating will report directly to the senior courtyard, rather than their first block classes. After the rally, students will have 5 minutes to travel to their first block (All tardies will be excused).

At 10:00 a.m. , the “Right to Write” activity will occur and will last till 10:17 a.m. Students will be provided contact information for local, state, and national policymakers. All students will have the opportunity to write letters or send emails to their policymaker of choice.

All students are encouraged to wear red to school all day, as it is the MSD High school’s color.
