Pinwheels for Peace

Thanks to Mr. Binder, our trust counselor, for gathering all of us to show that peace reigns at HGHS. Now, lets take that out into our homes and community! Many of you wrote amazing haikus! I am so impressed with your talent, enthusiasm, and kindness! Keep up the good work!

A special thanks to Mrs. Davis for arranging for Mr. Louis Schneider, a Holocaust survivor, to come and speak to the tenth graders. This week our classes have been reading Night, which recounts Elie Wiesel's ordeal in Auschwitz. All of these wonderful activities have made this week a vital learning experience to remember! I hope my students will always use this experience as a guide for how to be instruments of peace throughout their lives!

Mrs. Rodriguez our instruments of peace are being blown to the ground by wind. Does that mean we're losing peace or is our wind stealing peace from us? If so then it is my belief that mother nature is trying to morally rape peace from humanity.

Something to think about.

Richard, you are a trip! Perhaps we allow peace to fall by not taking more step to secure it. Mother Nature will do her thing; it's our job to remain deeply rooted and strong.

SMILE! Congrats on your VERY EXCELLENT FCAT Writes Score!

This was a really fun event, and as far as the whole "mother nature raping peace from humanity" is a pretty interesting topic to bring up and think about ha ha it took up some of my useless time on this late saturday night.>.<

Hey Miss!

Well I did a pinwheel for my fifth period and I thought it was the best idea the school's had so far. The peace sign came out kinda retarded though it looked like a football not a circle. But it was cool. I drew a tree, and a rainbow, and hearts, and butterflies on my pinwheel. It came out cute. I have a docotr's appointment so I'm not gonna be in your class today.
