Welcome Travis Roy

posted Apr 2, 2018, 7:24 AM by Eben Shaw

Please join me in welcoming Travis Roy to Leavitt.  He is the author of Eleven Seconds, a book that chronicles his experiences before and after suffering a spinal cord injury during the first shift of his first ever Division 1 hockey game with Boston University.  Mr. Roy is also the founder of the Travis Roy Foundation an organization that has raised over $6 million for spinal cord research and grants for individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries.  Mr. Roy will speak with our student body on Friday April 6th about overcoming challenges and working toward personal goals.  I want to thank Mrs. Lashman for working to organize this event as well as the Leavitt Trustees who have provided their support.

UPDATE TO WALK OUT

posted Mar 21, 2018, 5:30 AM by Peggy Gaumont

Good Morning,
Just as an update to the post from yesterday.  The following information will be shared with students at the start of their period 2 class.
"The plan for last Wednesday which involved students leaving class and gathering outside was intended to recognize the one month anniversary of the tragedy at Stoneman Douglas High School and coincide with the events planned at other schools across the country.  This event was not intended to be rescheduled.  For students who wish to further demonstrate their support for their peers in Parkland, Florida and other victims of school violence, we're willing to assist in organizing an event that takes place either before or after school.  There has been some conversation about students leaving class this morning at 10:00am.  This is not the rescheduled event from last week, and students who choose to participate and leave class will be assigned detention."

Student Walk Out Not Rescheduled

posted Mar 20, 2018, 11:15 AM by Peggy Gaumont

We, as a school, have taken steps to show our support for Stoneman Douglas High School and the individuals who lost their lives there.  Over the last several weeks, students organized an effort to make a quilt for their peers in Florida.  Through their HPT’s each student and staff member had an opportunity to personalize a square and then students in the Fiber and Fabric class combined each square into the completed quilt.  The quilt was actually completed over the weekend and presented yesterday during our student of the quarter assembly.  It is currently on display in the office and will be shipped to Stoneman Douglas along with a picture of the student body displaying the quilt.

When the event was planned for last week, it was intended to coincide with the one month anniversary of the tragedy in Parkland, Florida.  Students and I had worked closely to plan an event that would demonstrate our support for the community at Stoneman Douglas High School, while avoiding the politically charged atmosphere surrounding the student walk-out.  There was a great deal of thought that went into the planning for last week.  One of the aspects we looked at was planning something that could take place before school last Wednesday.  At the time, students were adamant they wanted to participate at the scheduled time and on the scheduled day.  When we discussed it last Monday, both students and I agreed that even though there was snow predicted, Wednesday was the day and we weren’t looking at rescheduling.  As you know the weather turned out such that we did not have school on Wednesday.  There were schools, granted they were south of here, where students, even though they didn’t have school, still organized and participated in an event of their own on Wednesday.  There have also been schools that have rescheduled and these schools saw mixed results, at least one of which had different groups of students with competing messages. The intended message of support for the school community in Parkland, Florida was overshadowed by other, more political messages.  I believe this was at least partially due to the loss of the symbolism of gathering on the one month anniversary of the tragedy itself.

Beyond that, I have offered to work with students who are interested, to organize an event that could take place either before or after school, if they want to show further support for the victims of the tragedy in Parkland, Florida.  I’m confident that we can continue to show our support for all victims of school violence in ways that everyone in our school community can support.

Good Afternoon,
We've been working closely with students to assist them in planning for an event allowing our students to show their support towards their peers in Parkland, Florida.  As a result of this collaboration students will be able to show their support for the community of Parkland, Florida and to pay their respects to those who lost their lives there on February 14th, as well as a show of support for families who have lost loved ones in past incidents of school violence. Interested students can gather outside the main entrance of Leavitt at 10:00am on Wednesday March 14th.  Students may choose to participate or they may choose to remain in class.  Either way is perfectly reasonable and there will be no judgement either way. Students who are planning to participate can leave period 2 at 10:00.  When the bell rings to end period 2 at 10:17, all students will report to extended HPT.

We will have supervision for the students who choose to participate as well as for students who remain in classes.  We are also keeping an eye to the weather and may adjust these plans in order to maintain the safety of our students.

Thank you
