National Junior Honor Society
Students at Redwater Junior High, who are members of the National Junior Honor Society, used their Friday afternoon to pack food boxes at Harvest Food Bank which depends on volunteers to serve those in need. These students worked hard to pack 120 boxes with food items to assist the Texarkana and neighboring communities. These young students were proud to serve their fellow man, and they hope to inspire everyone to positively impact others’ lives as well.
Redwater Junior High Student of the Month
Kaci Vejvoda, an 8th grader at Redwater Junior High, has been selected as the Student of the Month for April 2018. Kaci is often the bright spot in everyone’s day. She goes out of her way to enquire about the welfare of others, and she is always there with a friendly hug or pat on the shoulder, and an affectionate smile. Kaci shows her appreciation of the work others put forth when she compliments and encourages the school’s custodial staff on the excellent care they take of our facilities. Kaci often chooses to spend some of her free time at a local orphanage where she enjoys interacting with other young people who are less fortunate. Kaci’s sweet spirit and kind-hearted nature is apparent to all who are fortunate enough to have her be a part of their day. The faculty and staff at Redwater Junior High are very pleased to recognize Kaci Vejvoda as the April 2018 Student of the Month.
A Life Changing Experience...
Students in Mrs. Linda Edwards’ 8th grade GT/Advanced English Language Arts class recently went to the Dallas Holocaust Museum to heighten their knowledge and understanding of the plight and devastation of the Jewish people during World War II. Studying the memoir of Eli Wiesel’s Night, students read the first-hand account of this victim as a 14 year old boy who spent two years under the heavy hand of the German SS concentration camp and encountered demoralizing and shattering experiences changing his life forever. While at the Museum, students saw and heard many quotes from the book they had read, firmly connecting the classroom with reality through first-hand accounts from other victims as well as viewing artifacts such as handmade slippers (shoes) made out of human hair and the Jewish Star patches the Jews had to sew on their clothes. Eighth grader, Cami Wilson, stated, “Hearing from the actual people made the information that we read about in Night much more real and personal.” Cami went on to say, “It was so disturbing to hear about the violence against children and families, carried out by people who went home to their own families who were safe and sound.” Classmate, Erika Roberts, said, “The visual of seeing so many people who were so painfully thin, and who had lost their lives, is something that I will never forget. It makes me grateful for what I have.” The students stated that this was definitely a life changing experience for them.
