Today one of our students was tragically killed in a car accident. He was on the way to his bus stop and got hit. We got word that he died this afternoon and then made formal announcements. I did not have the student, but I am feeling the loss. Just the fact that he was 14 is so tragic. My 9th grade kids were so upset and seeing them affected by this is so sad. I'm also thinking about the parents and how hard this is going to be for them. Our school has only been open for 5 years and this is the first tragedy we've had. My 7th graders who didn't know the student were making cards and signs saying, "In Memory." I was touched at how they were trying to do something about the situation even though they didn't know the student. This is so sad.
