Mindfulness Assembly Raises Eyebrows

I’ll be straightforward with you.  I don’t understand mindfulness.  I don’t get what it is or more importantly, why we need it.

It’s Not All About That Bass

It’s a typical car ride in the Wong household, meaning that I’m screaming along to pop songs at the top of my lungs and my sister is videotaping me – no doubt for later blackmail material.  For probably the thousandth time, Meghan Trainor’s new hit, “All About That Bass”, comes on.  But this time,...

Redirecting the National Conversation

The shooting at Santa Barbara this weekend has dominated the news, and for the wrong reasons.  I see the same pattern after every mass shooting, and it never fails to fill me with a hopeless sense of anger.  Why on earth does the media continue to publish the killer’s name?  We are teaching the...

Why ADL Isn’t Working

April 28, 2014
By

I’d like to preface this by saying, I really, really respect our school’s efforts to combat racism, especially after the disgusting graffiti incident last year. I admire the students who have spent hours training to become ADL Peer Leaders and are clearly committed to eradicating racism from our school.  But the current Anti Defamation...
