Trauma, hope and resilience

Students share messages through art; showcase today

Through many forms of original art, eighth graders at Lakes Middle School present their responses to themes of trauma, hope and resilience. “I was really impressed with the effort a lot of kids put in,” Eighth grade language arts teacher Margo Swanson said. “It was a challenge for the kids to think and create in a new way.”
