Acera Student #Walkout

March 30, 2018 |

It’s the movement of their generation, and Acera students are on it: On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, a group of Upper Elementary and Middle School students walked out of school for 17 minutes, occupied a corner on Cross Street, and voiced their concerns and ideas following recent school shootings, most importantly the tragedy in Parkland, Florida. Many cars indicated support, some drivers had questions, and a reporter came to cover the #Walkout — exactly the engagement students had hoped for.  Watch them articulate their reasons in the clip below, and browse the coverage in the Winchester Star. (The event was moved from the National Walkout date on 3.14.18 because of a snow and no school day.)
