EDITED TO ADD: It's not clear when the students are returning to school, maybe next week. YOU DON'T NEED TO WAIT TO WRITE YOUR LETTER. You can consider this swap deadline for your paragraph to your partner.
The info below indicates letters from kids, but I want to support them too - and if you know kids, encourage them to write as well. The swap is to send a letter to the address listed below, then message or email your partner by the deadline and write them a paragraph about your response to the shooting and how you handled this letter of support.
"A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher is trying to help as people mourn the loss of 17 people killed during a Feb 14 school shooting there.
"Reaching out to AP world history teachers, Diane Rogers wants to help her students heal from the horrific event they have experienced, a Facebook post says.
"'I would like to greet them all on the first day back with letters of support ... Not the email kind or the texting kind byt real letters handwritten and signed by kids from our amazing community.
"'I want them to hold the envelopes addressed from around the world to see that they are not alone and there is still kind and caring people in this world,' the post says. 'If you would like to participate please send the letters.'
The address is:
Stoneman Douglas High School
5901 NW Pine Island Road
Parkland, FL 33076
Please rate your partner a 5 if s/he messaged you about the experience.
