 Keith Chatinover and all our students carried out a memorable and thoughtful National School Walkout activity yesterday morning. We walked from school at 9:55 to the sidewalk passing in front of the West Tisbury Emergency Services building along State Road, stood quietly and rang a bell every minute for seventeen minutes in memory of those who lost their lives in Parkland, FL one month ago. Each minute the bell rang a student raised a sign that read “One of Us” until all seventeen signs were raised. Thank you to Police Chief Dan Rossi with his assistance during this event.

 The Neverending Story goes on stage this weekend at the Katharine Cornell Theater. The shows are Saturday, March 17, at 2:00 and 6:00 and Sunday’s performance is at 2:00.
