Marshall Simonds Middle School 7th Graders, Erin and Spencer helped Joshua Lee create an important video made to end the use of the word Retarded or the “R-Word.” These three students created the video below to educate their peers in the power of this negative words. The class of 2018 all viewed the video at brunch last week and then had the opportunity to sign a poster to pledge to not use the R-Word and recognize it as ignorant and hurtful. MSMS encourages you to share this video with your friends and family. Together, we can make a difference.
