For fourth quarter, Sociology got to do something pretty amazing. After discussing the tragic
school shooting in Florida, students decided to do something that would make a difference. On
March 14, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. all grades 7-12 made their way across to the new parking lot to
participate in an act of support for M.S. Douglas High School in Florida. Sociology students had
a small balloon launch in remembrance of those who were wounded and had lost their lives in
the shooting. Inside each balloon was a heart with the names of the victims on it. In addition,
students and staff from other subject areas participated by making signs and banners. On this
day for a brief time, we weren’t just the Southern Raiders, or the Douglas Eagles, we were one
in a show of solidarity for the lost victims. I urge everyone to go to the school website and
watch the video of the activity if you have not already. It was a great day to be a Raider!
