Student Leaders Participate in National School Walkout
Student leaders at CIHS attended the March for Our Lives demonstration in Washington, DC on March 24th and returned invigorated to continue the work. Students planned a demonstration to align with the National School Walkout planned for April 20th in memory of the 19th anniversary of the mass shooting at Columbine High. After 2nd period, a little over half of the 9th graders at CIHS convened in the MultiPurpose Room for a pre-rally (see below) and then walked to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections just down the street to set up a memorial informing voters as they entered of the deep importance of this issue to our youth. After 13 minutes of silence in honor of the victims at Columbine, the students returned to class.
