School Canceled for the Year
It is no surprise that school is now canceled for the remainder of the school year. Missouri Governor Parsons made it official on Thursday, April 9 that all public and charter schools would be closed for the rest of the year due to the extremely contagious nature of the Coronavirus. A lot of people are just focusing on the students, but what about the teachers? Teachers are the foundation of any school and without teachers, there isn't education. They have given up their family time and free time making lesson plans, trying to stay positive for the sake of their students, and making sure that their students succeed. “Just keep going and finish out the year strong, don’t give up! This year hasn't been for nothing!” exclaimed social studies teacher Ms. Frye. This is hard on all of us, but we are strong and we will get through this together.--by Lailyn Thomas
