Approximately one-hundred Memorial students made their voices heard by participating in a School Safety Awareness event on the lawn area located outside the Main Office on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. The voluntary event was organized by 8th grader Maxwell Clark with the assistance of Principal Dominick Kaple and other staff members. The students and staff were joined by members of the Lyndhurst Police Department and South Euclid Councilperson Joseph Frank around the engraved school sign located just outside the Main Office. Councilperson Frank delivered brief remarks expressing solidarity with the students’ desire to raise awareness about school safety, while 8th grader Maxwell Clark spoke passionately about the need to stand up for change to ensure student safety is protected. In a moving tribute to those who lost their lives in the recent tragedy in Parkland, FL, students read aloud each individual name and placed a yellow ribbon on the engraved sign to honor their memory. The SEL Schools wish to thank all students, staff and community members who participated in the School Safety Awareness event for bringing attention to this important issue.
