This morning we lost a student in a bus accident. Please keep his family in your prayers. Also, please pray for our students -- today was a very difficult day, dealing with a lot of shock. Tomorrow is going to be difficult as well -- as the shock experienced today wears off, the reality of the situation is going to hit home for many of these students.
I had him in class last year -- you couldn't ask for a nicer, more positive young man. Even though he wasn't in any of my classes this year, he still stopped by my room from time to time just to let me know what he was up to. He loved to talk -- I'm going to miss that.
This is such a huge loss for our school and community.
