9th - 12th graders: We the Student’s Essay Contest. To enter this year's We the Students essay contest in which we challenge students to tell us what they think the relationship is between Equality and Justice. To truly explore the question in an essay that is between 500 -800 words, students will need to go beyond "dictionary definitions," and express their understanding and reasoning about the connection between these two principles. This reasoning involves a combination of observation, experience, and some pretty "big ideas." What does it take to understand them? To build toward and maintain them? To see them with regard to each other? Why is this relationship important? The sixteen student winners will receive a total of $20,000 in scholarship prizes. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2021. More details including rules and regulations can be found on their website here.
LUNCH TODAY: French toast sticks, syrup, tri-tators, ham patty, juice and assorted milk.
