After 3 suicides, students promote "Respect for All"
Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills has seen three students commit suicide since January. In response, the staff created a campaign to promote better treatment of others called, "Respect for All."
The school says these suicides may or may not be due to bullying, but either way, they still want the message of respect to resonate among their students.
Students who are part of the Art Media Club wanted to gather more support for this movement and get the message out from the students' perspective.
They decided to make a video showcasing students from all walks of life emphasizing that everyone has qualities making them unique and special.
This video, titled "I am Oak Ridge," was made entirely by the talented students of the Art Media Club at Oak Ridge High School.
Students come together at ORHS to show who they really are for Respect For All. These students want to unify everyone so we can all do great things. We are more than the person you see from the outside but most important. Follow The Art Media Club on Facebook!
