Ø  Students, 8 local high schools have decided to take part in a project in response to the incident at Parkland in Florida. The catalyst for this project came from two students in the area, who stated  “We decided a couple months back when the Parkland school incident took place that we in Southern Indiana should do something about it. We are the next generation and we don’t want this to be something our kids fear like we do. We decided to make this heart sculpture and connect with schools around us to show that we don’t stand for school violence, we want school to be a safe place.” The sculpture and materials will be delivered to NAHS Monday, 5/14/18.  It will be placed in the door 1 atrium.  Please stop by on your way to lunch to take part in the project.  It will be here MondayTuesday, and Wednesday before moving on to another local high school, then will be displayed in the community.
