Gratitude from Students at Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa
The coronavirus time continues to be deeply challenging, bringing job loss and economic hardship, mental and physical health challenges, and major disruption in how we live our daily lives. All the more reason to smile when you see young people giving thanks to the heroes of this challenging moment. Here’s one you will want to share with your friends.
Recently, the Quest Forward Academy Santa Rosa Student Council organized an effort to film their classmates and mentors expressing their gratitude – distance-appropriate of course – via Zoom video. The students organized the online “shoot,” directed their mentors on how to film, and the Student Council president, Mira, edited the final video for release.
I present student work at its most authentic. Enjoy, and allow Mira and all the students in Santa Rosa to lift your spirits!
