A horrific traffic accident this weekend shook our community.
Six senior girls were traveling together when they started to experience
some mechanical problems with their vehicle.
Going 10 mph with their hazard lights flashing,
they were rear-ended by another vehicle.
Their Jeep burst into flames.
The first responders (Guardian Angels)
were able to help them
escape from the burning vehicle.
We are so thankful that all the girls survived...
however, they will require time to heal physically and emotionally.
All six of these girls have been a delight to have in class.
They are excellent students, involved in athletics,
activities, and Student Senate.
This is the phone call that no parent wants to get.
They have a difficult road ahead.
Please keep the girls and their families in your prayers.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

I have been teaching here long enough to have had the girls and their mommies in class.
I cannot stop thinking about what these families are experiencing.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
