LS Students Can Make a Difference
National Walkout Day, the movement powered and led by students across the country who are protesting congressional, state, and local failures to take action to prevent gun violence, is an event mostly observed by high school students. Stage IV student, Zora Nunley, thought the Lower School should take part in this important event. Many others, including LS Student Government, agreed.
Inspired by National Walkout Day being held on April 20th, the LS will host an assembly that will serve as a celebration of our school that is appropriate for our students. Friday’s event is called the You Can Make a Difference assembly.
The program will be about the power of our voices and how each of us can make a difference in the world. It will also highlight and celebrate our diversity, the relationships between students, parents, teachers and staff, and Roeper’s unique and peaceful environment. The students want to emphasize the importance of kindness and that all of us can be change agents.
Many classes or stages will share a song, poem or other activity during the assembly. Each class will also share a single statement that represents their class philosophy about how we make our community a better place. These statements will be shared during the assembly.
Even though National Walkout Day is the inspiration for our assembly, our gathering is about much more. By using our voices, we can be the change we want to see in the world.
