Students, parents make emotional return to Florida school where mass shooting occurred - Myrtle Beach Sun NewsTuesday, February 27, 2018
Goldfarb, 51, said that teachers hung all the posters and signs people from around the country sent to the school, including one he snapped a picture of — a message from Conestoga Middle School in Oregon declaring, “We Stand With You.”He and his wife, Stella, said they feel comfortable sending their three high schoolers back to campus on Wednesday, but they worry that their kids might be overwhelmed with emotion when they settle in and see the empty seats of classmates who aren’t coming back.Holly and Steve Golub, who visited campus with their 14-year-old son, have the same concern. Holly Golub said she’s been proud of how her son, Bradley, has handled himself. He meets with his friends every night so they can talk things out and support one another. But she worries that his hard-won peace could be challenged when he goes back to school.“All of a sudden you’re back in that environment,” she said. “Does it change the way you handle it?”For his part, Bradley said he’s looking forward to getting back to school and being with his friends, but he knows that not everyone will feel the same on the first day back.“I’m going to go hug my friends and try to be supportive of people who aren’t handling it as well as I am,” he said.Outside the chain link fence surrounding the campus, the memorial to the 17 victims was crowded with a steady stream of visitors dropping off fresh flowers, stuffed animals and notes. Some stopped by before or after visiting campus, and others came by just to offer a prayer or moment of silence. Almost everyone wore Marjory Stoneman Douglas branded clothing or maroon ribbons pinned to their chests. Liam Kiernan, decked out in an MSD Strong T-shirt of his own, said the way the community has come together — and how his classmates have raised their voices for political action — makes him feel like the 17 people who died will be remembered.“It gives me hope to see the once broken coming back together again,” he said. “That’s what they would have wanted.”... http://www.myrtlebeachonline.com/news/nation-world/national/article202157504.html
Cambridge class manages the business of delivering love - Idaho EdNewsTuesday, February 27, 2018
The floral shop is the only place in town to get a bouquet of flowers within 30 miles. Students deliver flowers to residents in Cambridge, Council, Midvale and Oregon. Customers can call in an order, stop by the shop, or pick their flowers online.Floral teacher Jodie Mink begins training her 12 floral students in August on the elements of floral design, which include space, texture, pattern, shape, color and size. Students learn about flower mechanics, geometry and organizational skills.“A lot of flowers are ruined while learning,” Mink said. “Nothing goes out the door until I know it’s a quality product.”Students prepare orders two weeks in advance, processing credit cards, writing love notes and sorting balloons and candy. On Valentine’s Day, 34 students out of 42 that are enrolled at the school come together to help wrap flowers, arrange bouquets, blow up balloons and deliver.“This is serious business,” Mink said. “We are a full-service.”The flowers arrived fresh on Monday and students sorted out roses and carnations by colors — red, pink, white, yellow orange and purple. The flower arrangements cost between $8 and $55 and come with a special love note. The profits made go back into the floral class for future expenses and into the FFA club.“This is a lot of work, but it’s worth it because I’m learning a valuable skill of running a business and floral design,” said Annalise DeVries, a sophomore at Cambridge High School. “I feel valued.”Students work year-round creating flower arrangements for anniversaries, birthdays, funerals, weddings and holiday décor. The floral shop makes an average of $6,000 a year and is on track to bea...
