Thank you so much for letting us have this opportunity! The kids were really overwhelmed with the experience of going to the hospital and hearing about the kids and your job as a Child Life Specialist Traci. The students are so proud and excited that they get to help make these children’s lives a little bit better through art. All the way out of the hospital they started coming up with ideas for other ways they can help those kids more. It was inspiring for me as a teacher to realize how much they learned about empathy and how art can influence someone’s life for the better.
I feel grateful that we were able to coordinate the tour, bus and sub for this amazing project. It was a wonderful experience! The students really want to make this an annual project so they can continue to support kids in need.

Our Nation grieves with those who have lost loved ones in the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. As a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible act of violence perpetrated on February 14, 2018, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, February 19, 2018. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifteenth day of February, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.
