    In just one weeks time, our small town of about 30,000 has lost 3 children under the age of 17. The first came on Monday night when a 16 year old boy, who just that day had shadowed a police officer in a mentorship program, rolled his car and was killed. The very next morning, a six year old boy was hit and killed by a school bus in the morning. Then, on Thursday, a 4 year old little girl died after having a seizure at a local day care facility. I am just numb...its a lot to take in just one weeks time. Although none of the above were student's at my school, our students are suffering just the same. Please, keep our community, my students, and especially the families of these children in your prayers. :(
