SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

 HOME OF THE OWLS!

 

Mascot History: The bird was employed proverbially and figuratively in reference to nocturnal habits, ugliness, and appearance of gravity and wisdom (often ironic).

 

 Wise as an owl means the person being described is very wise, and probably knows a lot of information.

 "Dedicated to Educational Excellence"

 School starts at 8:00 a.m.

"Racism is Taking Over" 

by

Me'Yauney Peoples

 

Save the world right now

Racism is horrible

People are killing

  

This needs to stop

Too many lives are leaving

No equality

 

People are judging

By the color of your skin

 Not by who you are

 

This is horrible

This really has to end now

Time to save the world
