During this short week, we welcomed Elena Brennan of the Michigan Council on Crime and Delinquency into our class to talk with us about youth in the criminal justice system. Some of our students have been focusing their research on youth in the criminal justice system for their Michigan Student Caucus projects and we invited Elena to our class to talk with us about MCCD’s “Raise the Age” campaign (which aims to raise the age at which a young person who enters the criminal justice system is considered an “adult”).
Students also continued to work on their Constitution skits (to be performed on 11/21 at 9am in the middle school commons) and their Michigan Student Caucus proposals. They are also getting excited for next week’s Music Cafe and they hope to see the whole SK community at the Cafe on 11/17.
On Friday, the eighth graders continued their visits to local high schools with a trip to Community High School.
