SAFE SCHOOLS RALLY
Last Wednesday, March 14, 2018, the student body from Soledad High School formed a phrase, #enough, on the football field. Speakers included, Superintendent Tim Vanoli; Maria Zamora, Teacher; and student, Getsemani Puga. Getsemani highlighted many of the students from the Stoneman Douglass High School in Florida who lost their lives. The rally ended with a minute of silence on behalf of the 17 individuals who lost their lives. At lunch time, students signed a large banner that was titled, “We stand against school violence.” This banner will be signed by students across the district and will be sent to Congressman Panetta. It was a very positive display of unity around the topic of ending violence in our schools. Those who came out to support the students included high school staff, Mayor Fred Ledesma; City Council Members, Alejandro Chavez and Chris Bourke; School Board member, Monica Pantoja; MCOE Deputy Superintendent, Dr. Deneen Guss; as well as District Office personnel.
