In light of Science Teacher Dr. James Laughner’s announcement during Sunday sit-down on January 20th, we would also like to recognize the fact that Deerfield really is the kind of place where we can trust each other, a place where students and faculty leave material things out in the open, knowing that it is unlikely people will steal their phones or computers.
We would like to commend the members of our community for making our school this kind of place, as it takes the student body to shape such a place. The ability to trust one another is an important aspect of our school spirit. It’s reassuring to know that Deerfield students are honest when it comes to not taking other people’s valuable belongings without asking.
It is important to realize that every act of kindness and every honest deed helps create the community spirit we strive to have.
