Juvenile hall perceptions go beyond what meets the eye

Juvenile hall perceptions go beyond what meets the eye

June 19, 2018
Think someone in prison has hit rock bottom? Maybe not. The juvenile detention center in San Mateo County provides many opportunities that can help kids who may have fallen down the wrong path turn around. There are many rehabilitative resources and services to offer kids in need, including academic counselors, who make sure school credits are being transferred, and therapists, who help the kids through their traumatic experiences.
Carlmont students Jill Albertson and Kendall Butler participate in the rally by chanting and holding up signs calling for more gun control.

Students march for their lives

March 24, 2018
At 837 marches, communities gathered to protest the lives lost to gun violence. But in Redwood City, it was different. In Redwood City, the rally was for the students, by the students. At the head of the cause was a group of students from the Sequoia Union High School District: Stefan Sujansky, Holly Newman, Sophie Penn, Ria Calcagno, Elise Kratzer, and Katie Uthman. While another rally was already scheduled to take place in San Francisco on March 24, Penn, a senior at Carlmont High School, said bringing the issue to Redwood City would make it more accessible for the community.
