Students engage in nation-wide movement

Students across the nation spent time at 10 a.m. recognizing the importance of school safety.

While some schools engaged in protests and walkouts, the HHS Student Council invited the student body to participate in an optional movement held in the high school auditorium.

According to StuCo president Blake Harris, it was important to provide the student body with the time to reflect on the school safety issue and needs of safety within the school.

Students used the quiet time to reflect on this issue and to show support for school safety.

They had the option of staying in their classrooms or moving to the auditorium where all remained quiet with music in the background provided by StuCo.

Students tied red yarn to their wrists to symbolize their support for school safety. StuCo released balloons afterward to spread word to the community.
