When groups of intelligent minds join together to stand up for what they believe in, incredible things can happen. This proved to be true on March 15th, 2018 when a group of students from our school joined together to walk out in support of stricter gun legislation. The student walkouts that have been occurring across the nation recently are intended to let government officials know that the youth of America is more powerful than they may assume, and that we have a message that needs to be listened to. This has become more than an issue of politics, and instead it has become an issue of innocent lives being taken.
What blew me away most about the walkout was the overwhelming support the staff gave its students. In many schools across the country, teachers were punishing students for their peaceful walkouts, but we were extremely lucky and blessed to have teachers and administration who understand their students are merely trying to make a difference in the world around them, and are willing to support them as they do so.
Being part of this walkout and seeing the overwhelming support from the students and staff greatly warmed my heart. A special thank you to my fellow students who organized the march, to all the brave souls who gave touching speeches, to everyone that participated, and to our very supportive faculty. This walkout gave me hope that by uniting together we can all make a difference.
On Friday, March 23rd, Matignon hosted its biannual career day, though there were a few differences compared to the previous one. Instead of having students visit three guest speakers throughout the day, each with a different focus, they first broke up students by grade and… Read More
