Friday, April 22 was the National Day of Silence - a day of silent protest and memorial of all queer voices silenced now and throughout history.
WFS recognized this day with a campaign of silence where participating students could go about their day in silence to both commemorate queer lives and call attention to the lack of education and acknowledgement of queer identity and history.
As a culminating activity in their ukulele unit, fifth graders prepared simple songs to sing and play on the ukulele and took their show on the road, visiting with with younger friends in preschool, prekindergarten, and kindergarten. Everyone enjoyed listening and even sang along!
Recently, seventh grade students prepared more than 250 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a snack, and a piece of fruit for Wilmington's Sunday Breakfast Mission, which has served the homeless, addicted, and impoverished for over 125 years.
