Over Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend Platt junior Angel-Lee Hart and Social Studies teacher Marisa Volo traveled to Raleigh, N.C., to plan for the National Sandy Hook Promise/SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) Summit taking place on April 13 in Concord, N.C.
Angel, and 11 other students from around the country, met to discuss their progress in bringing Sandy Hook Promise and SAVE activities, events, and programs to each of their schools. They also used their time to discuss the activities and workshops that will be used to serve the anticipated 500-person audience. Angel and these 11 other students were chosen on a national-level for their commitment and passion to ending school violence and social isolation, and bringing awareness to mental health in their communities through the use of Sandy Hook Promise/SAVE programs. Platt's next major Sandy Hook Promise/SAVE call-to-action week will be Say Something Week, taking place Feb. 25 to March 1 and will focus on making students aware of the signs and signals of violence and the steps to take action to make Meriden schools a safer place to learn and work for all.
