The MG community came together last Friday for our first virtual whole school assembly. After hearing some nuts and bolts from Mr. Schutz and Mr. Shebar, Mrs. Barrett introduced the students to the young adult history book, and the first-ever MGRS school-wide read, Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You, by Jason Reynolds and Ibram Kendi. Mrs. Barrett then invited everyone to a live virtual discussion with Mr. Reynolds, who is an award-winning, bestselling young adult author and the current National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.
A video recording of the live discussion can be viewed here:
